It is interesting to see how many of these managers had never managed in the majors before.  Many of them managed in the Indians' dark ages of the 60's, 70's, and 80's.
How many of them worked their way up through the Indians' farm system?  How many of them never managed again?

 

* Mel Harder actually managed 1 game in 1961 and 2 games in 1962 ,
