[edit] Biographical Information

Primarily a backup catcher during his 13 season big league career, Mike Redmond went 253 games behind the plate without committing an error between 2004 and 2010, setting a big league record. He retired following the 2010 season and was named manager of the Lansing Lugnuts for 2011, moving on to the Dunedin Blue Jays in 2012.

On November 1, 2012, Redmond was announced as the manger of the Miami Marlins in 2013, succeeding the controversial Ozzie Guillen. Owner Jeffrey Loria cited his close ties with the marlins organization, in addition to his great baseball mind, as factors that motivated the choice. When the Marlins were shut out in their first two games of the season, Redmond became only the second manager in major league history to have that happen; the first had been Jack Chapman of the 1876 Louisville Grays. The losses both came against the Washington Nationals, 2-0 and 3-0 on April 1st and 3rd. Before the year was over, another manager would have a similar rough welcome, as it was the fate that befell Ryne Sandberg when he replaced Charlie Manuel as skipper of the Philadelphia Phillies on August 16th.
