Calgary Vipers Skipper Morgan Burkhart Named 2009 GBL Manager Of The Year October 14, 2009 - Golden Baseball League (GBL)
(San Ramon, CA. October 14, 2009) The Golden Baseball League (GBL) announced today that Calgary Vipers' skipper Morgan Burkhart has been named 2009 GBL Manager of the Year. The rookie manager led his club to first and second half championships in the North Division, the first team ever to win both division halves in the history of the GBL, and then went on to defeat archrival Edmonton in the Division Championship Series and won the 2009 GBL Title with a 3 games to 1 victory over the Tucson Toros.
Burkart, 37, is from the St. Louis area and attended Central Missouri State. He played four years in the Frontier League with the Richmond Roosters. He was the MVP runner-up in 1995, and won the award in 1996-97-98. The league's MVP award is now named for him. Signed by the Boston Red Sox he advanced to the major leagues and played with Boston in 2000 and 2001 and then went to Japan for 2002 with the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks. He returned in 2003 and played with the Kansas City Royals before finishing his career with AAA seasons the next three years. He joined the Calgary Vipers as the hitting coach in 2007 under Manager Mike Busch when Calgary was in the Northern League. Under his tutelage the Vipers led the Northern League in hitting and made the playoffs before falling in the Championship Finals. In 2008, now in the Golden League, the Vipers had an identical season under Busch and Burkhart as they once again led the league in hitting only to come up a game short of the winning the title.
...
With Mike Busch departing, Burkhart stepped up to the Manager position in 2009 and his team responded tremendously. They swept both halves, finished with a regular season overall record of 49-27 (.645), easily led the league in hitting as the top four GBL batting average leaders were all Vipers, and defeated the Tucson Toros to bring home the first professional baseball championship to Calgary as they avenged the Calgary Cannons loss to the Tucson Toros in the 1991 Pacific Coast League Championship Series.
"We're pleased to honor Morgan with this award," said Golden Baseball League Commissioner Kevin Outcalt.

#16 Morgan Burkhart - Field Manager
Morgan Returns as the skipper for the Calgary Vipers for the second straight season. Morgan Burkhart was named the second manager of the Calgary Vipers in October 2008 after spending the previous two seasons as the club's hitting coach.
The native of St. Louis, Missouri is one of the few true "diamonds in the rough" who - overlooked by Major League organizations - began his professional career in independent baseball before making the long climb all the way to the big leagues.
Then it happened. Un-recruited, un-scouted, un-drafted - Morgan Burkhart had made it all the way to the big leagues. Even more remarkable was the fact that he was only two-plus seasons removed from the relative obscurity of an independent league. Burkhart joined the Red Sox in late June and made his Major League debut June 27, 2000 as Boston hosted Baltimore at Fenway Park.
In addition, former major leaguer ...

The Windy City ThunderBolts announced that former Chicago White Sox pitcher, Ehren Wassermann will be the 2012 Pitching Coach under Field Manager Morgan Burkhart.
...
ThunderBolts Field Manager Morgan Burkhart is excited about welcoming Ehren to his 2012 staff. "I'm looking forward to working with Ehren, he brings with him a lot of baseball experience through a long successful career playing at the highest level," Burkhart commented. Burkhart continued by saying, "After talking with him I think he will transition easily into the teaching aspect of the game, and it's nice to bring the background and experience he has to these younger ballplayers."
With the new hire, Windy City will be led by both a field manager and pitching coach that have played in the Major Leagues (Burkhart - Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals) and an Independent League during their career.
