Woodward’s Time As Rangers Manager

After being hired on November 2, 2018, Woodward became the Rangers manager for 2019-2022. Woodward’s record was 211 wins and 287 defeats. Woodward was not helped by the fact that the Rangers lost102 games in the 2021 Major League Baseball regular season. In franchise history, the Rangers’ 102 losses in 2021 was the second-highest number of losses in a single season. In 1973, the Rangers lost more 105 games. Whitey Herzog, Del Wilber, and Billy Martin of Berkeley, California, managed the Rangers that year. Herzog was a successful manager for the St. Louis Cardinals and won the 1982 World Series. Martin won a World Series in 1977 with the New York Yankees. However, Martin will be remembered for being fired by George Steinbrenner on four occasions.
