[edit] Biographical Information

Catcher Buddy Bailey was drafted in the 26th round of the 1978 amateur draft by the Kansas City Royals and the 16th round of the 1979 amateur draft by the Atlanta Braves and played for 3 years in the Braves system.

Bailey spent 9 years coaching/managing in the Braves organization and 14 years in the Boston Red Sox chain. In 2000 Bailey was the bench coach for the Red Sox, and in 2006 he was the Chicago Cubs' minor league catching and baserunning coordinator. In 2007 he was the manager of the Iowa Cubs.

Bailey has managed one of the best dynasties in Venezuelan Winter League history, piloting the Tigres de Aragua to 5 titles in 6 years from 2003-2009. Bailey led the franchise to its first Caribbean Series title in 2009. After missing out on the title for two years, Bailey again guided his squad to a championship in 2012, with a team that had to overcome the kidnapping of C Wilson Ramos, and the tragic death of P Rosman Garcia in a car crash.
