By Sam Bush

The 79-year-old Manuel was the Phillies’ manager from 2004-13, leading them to the 2008 World Series title, beating the Tampa Bay Rays.

That was part of a five-season stretch in which the Phillies won the National League East title, reach the National League Championship Series three times and the World Series twice. The Phillies also reach the 2009 World Series, where they lost to the New York Yankees.

Manuel was fired 120 games into the 2013 season. He ended his Phillies career with a record of 780-636. He is a member of the Phillies Wall of Fame.

He had a career managerial record of 1,000-826. He also managed Cleveland from 2000-02.

He returned to the Phillies in 2019 as their hitting coach.
