List of Major League Baseball Managers by Wins
Connie Mack baseball card, 1910. Connie Mack is the all-time leader in career wins and losses by a manager.

This article contains a list of all Major League Baseball managers with at least 1,000 career regular-season wins, as well as a second list of managers who have regular season win percentages of at least .540 and managed at least 450 games, equivalent to slightly under three full seasons.[1] Both lists are current through the games of July 19 of the 2021 regular season. Connie Mack, who managed the Pittsburgh Pirates for three years, and the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years, is the all-time leader in both wins and losses. Due to their length of service, seven of the top ten managers (in wins) also appear in the top ten in losses.

Tony La Russa is the active wins leader with 2,785 managed wins. The active manager closest to surpassing 1,000 wins is Bud Black, who has a record of 965-1038 (.482). The only managers with over 1,000 losses but fewer than 1,000 wins are Black, Terry Collins, who is 995-1017 (.495) and Phil Garner, who is 985-1054 (.483).

Managers with 1,000 or more wins

Tony La Russa is the active manager with the most wins, and has guided his teams to three World Series titles.
