[edit] Biographical Information

Catcher Terry Bevington was selected by the New York Yankees in the 4th round of the 1974 amateur draft. He played seven seasons in the minors, in the Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers organizations.

After his playing career ended, he was a minor league manager in the Brewers system for seven seasons before joining the Chicago White Sox organization. The Sox made him a coach in 1989, and in 1995, he replaced Gene Lamont as the team's skipper. He posted a 222-214 record in two and a half seasons at the club's helm before being fired in 1997.

In 1998, he joined the Toronto Blue Jays organization and was their third base coach from 1999 to 2001. In 2003 and 2004, he managed the Shreveport Sports in the independent Central League. He coached for Team USA in the 2003 Baseball World Cup. In 2005, he was named manager of the Northern League's Edmonton Cracker-Cats, and he led the club through the middle of the 2006 season, when he stepped down. He returned to Shreveport as skipper in 2008, but was fired in late July after he had pulled his team off the field in a game against the Grand Prairie AirHogs, leading to a forfeit; the Sports were in a 7-game losing streak at the time, and only went 4-23 under his successor, Eddie Gerald.
