Ozzie's School of Management

Lessons from the Dugout, the Clubhouse, and the Doghouse

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Going behind the scenes with Ozzie Guillen, baseball's most colorful and irrepressible manager, to reveal the hidden factors that create a winning team

When Ozzie Guillen opens his mouth, nobody knows what's going to come out. And that has made the manager of the Miami Marlins endlessly entertaining to legions of baseball fans. In language that is often as profane as it is colorful, he will lash out not only at his team's opponents but also at his own players, reporters, fans, and most of all, himself. He is always getting himself in hot water, and he loves every minute of it.

Yet for all the antics and controversy, Guillen is also one of the game's best managers—a World Series champion and a perennial contender. This book opens the door on the secrets to his success.

Ozzie's School of Management distills the ten commandments of managing, Guillen-style, which means no-holds-barred and leave your squeamishness at the door. The Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist Rick Morrissey, who built a strong rapport with Guillen during his eight years with the Chicago White Sox, takes us on a rollicking ride through Ozzie's world, shining a light on his sharp intellect, organizational insights, and changing moods, and showing that the most important part of managing occurs before the first pitch and after the last out.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 09, 2012 – Along with those other maverick baseball managers Bill Martin and Lou Piniella, Ozzie Guillen, who has managed eight seasons after playing 13 seasons for the Chicago White Sox in the 1980s and 1990s, is the perfect candidate for critical analysis by Morrissey, a sports columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times. Morrissey relishes his job of chronicling Guillen, the Charles Barkley of baseball, with his outrageous remarks, fiery temper, and constant bickering with his players and the front office. Taking apart Guillen s strategies of management, the author shows the controversial baseball pilot in a variety of situations, motivating the players, sizing up the opposition, and trading barbs with the press. What the reader learns is that the manager s job is more than juggling statistics or changing the batting order; it s about managing human beings with sometimes limited talent, large egos, and a losing record in a long season, according to Morrissey. His remarkable stories about Guillen, who coached the Sox to a 2005 World Series win and will head the Miami Marlins this year, reflects everything that is good about America s favorite pastime, whether it s in the dugout or the clubhouse.
