[edit] Biographical Information

Catcher John Sullivan reached the majors with the Detroit Tigers in 1963 and played in a handful of big league games that year and the next. He did not get his first big league hit, a home run, until 1965.

After his playing days, Sullivan began managing in the minors in the Kansas City Royals organization in 1973. In six seasons as a minor league skipper, his clubs won four league championships. He then was a Royals coach in 1979 and a member of the Atlanta Braves staff the next two seasons. In 1982, he joined the Toronto Blue Jays as bullpen coach, a job he held through the 1993 season.
