Game 152 | June 28, 1967 | Cal Ermer
A longtime employee of the Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins organizations, Ermer was picked to manage the Twins when Sam Mele was fired midway through the 1967 season. Under Ermer, the team improved markedly and lost the American League pennant to the Boston Red Sox on the final weekend of the season. Ermer's 1968 team was plagued with injuries and he was fired at season's end in favor of Billy Martin. He never managed in the major league again, but spent much of the next decade as manager of the Twins' AAA farm club, the Toledo Mud Hens.
