Buck Showalter


Showalter began his managerial career, at the age of 29, with the New York-Penn League's Oneonta Yankees in 1985. He led Oneonta to a record of 55-23 that season capturing the NYPL Championship. He returned in 1986 and managed the club to a short-season record 59 wins and just 18 losses for an overall winning percentage of .735.

From there, it was onward and upward for Showalter, who is now in his 19th season as a skipper in the major leagues. In 1995, he led the NY Yankees to their first post-season berth in 14 years and then guided the Arizona Diamondbacks to their first division title in just their second season of existence in 1999.
Since joining the Baltimore Orioles in 2010, Showalter has led an O's resurgence, leading them to playoff berths in 2012, 2014 and 2016. He is a three-time American League Manager of the Year.

The New York‐Penn League Hall of Fame was established in 2011. Inductees are nominated and voted on by New York-Penn League club officials.
Induction ceremonies are scheduled to take place on August 15, during pregame ceremonies at the 2017 New York‐Penn League All‐Star Game at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium in Troy, NY, home of the Tri-City ValleyCats.
