#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. Press Releases [cached]
Morgan Burkhart named new Field Manager 09/22/2011 8:58 AM
The Windy City ThunderBolts have announced that Morgan Burkhart will become the new field manager, taking over the club for the 2012 season.
Burkhart comes to Windy City from the Calgary Vipers, where he spent the last three seasons as manager. In 2009, his rookie season in that position, he led the Vipers to a 49-27 record and a Golden League championship. In two years in the Golden League, Burkhart's Vipers went 102-62.
Calgary joined the North American Baseball League in 2011 and continued their recent success, finishing 53-33 and qualifying for the playoffs. Overall, in three seasons, Burkhart has compiled a managerial record of 155-95 and his teams have appeared in the postseason every year.
I n 2012, Burkhart will be managing for the first time in the Frontier League, where he achieved his most impressive numbers as a player. Between 1995 and 1998, he hit .353 for the Richmond Roosters. He was selected to the Postseason All-Star Team in all four of his Frontier League Seasons and won the league MVP award, which is now named for him, three times. In 1998, he won the Triple Crown, batting .404 with 36 home runs and 98 RBI, all league-records at the time.
When asked about his return to the Frontier League, Morgan said, "I am looking forward to getting back into the league where I began. I am excited about working in Windy City after talking with everyone this week. They seem to strive to put a winning team on the field, which is my plan. It will be nice throughout the summer to see some familiar faces and be back in the Midwest."
In 2000, Burkhart became just the second former Frontier League player to appear in the Major Leagues when the Boston Red Sox called him up. Burkhart spent time with the Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals from 2000 - 2003.
Bill Lee, the Commissioner of the Frontier League, had this to say about the hiring of Morgan Burkhart in Windy City, "The ThunderBolts could not have hired a better person.
Morgan Burkhart helped to build the Frontier League into what it is today. He is the greatest player we ever had and I am elated to have him back in the League. He is a former 3-time MVP and our first position player to make the Major Leagues."
Lee continued, "the league's MVP Award is named after Morgan Burkhart.
Burkhart takes over a ThunderBolt team that finished 48-48 in 2010. The Bolts reached the playoffs every year between 2007 and 2010 and won Frontier League titles in 2007 and 2008.
Burkhart added to his earlier statement, "I have always had interest in getting back in the league as it seems like it gets better each year.
