Florida Marlins Manager Jack McKeon to Retire at End of Season

Jack McKeon, who led the Florida Marlins to a World Series title in 2003 at the age of 72, will retire from baseball after the team’s last game of the season on Sept. 28.

McKeon rejoined the Marlins on June 20 on an interim basis after Edwin Rodriguez resigned as manager following a 1-18 slump that left the team with a division-worst 32-40 record.

McKeon, 80, is the second-oldest manager in Major League Baseball history behind Connie Mack, who ran the Philadelphia Athletics at 87 in 1950. Florida went 39-48 since McKeon’s return and is 71-88 with three home games remaining against the Washington Nationals.

McKeon won the World Series in his only playoff appearance in 16 years as a manager. With a 1,050-988 career record, he managed the Marlins from 2003-05 and also led the Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres and Cincinnati Reds.

Nicknamed “Trade Jack” as a player-swapping general manager in the 1980s, McKeon said this season that his return this year made him a role model to seniors, motivating them to stay active and even to get back to work.

“You ought to see the mail I get from older people,” he said in an interview. “It’s inspiring that they tell me I’m inspiring them to do something, to get involved.”
