Leo Ernest Durocher (July 27, 1905 - October 7, 1991) was a decent player, but made his name at the helm as manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers (1939-1946, 1948), the New York Giants (1948-1955), the Chicago Cubs (1966-1972) and the Houston Astros (1972-1973). He guided the Dodger to a National League pennant and the Giants to two National League pennants and on World Series championship (1954). Known as “Leo the Lip” for his trouble with authority, Durocher fired up his teams, compiling a record of 2,009-1,709 and was named Manager of the Year three times. As a player Durocher won World Series titles with the New York Yankees (1928) and the St. Louis Cardinals (1934) and retired as a player with 1,320 hits, 567 RBI and a .247 batting average. Yankee manager Miller Huggins saw managerial greatness in Durocher due to his competitive nature and ability to remember situations. The Veterans Committee elected Leo Ernest Durocher to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994.
