Maddon manages his 1,000th game
ST. PETERSBURG -- Rays manager Joe Maddon joined an elite crowd by managing his 1,000th game for the Rays on Saturday night.

Along with Maddon, the Angels' Mike Scioscia (1,971 games), the Twins' Ron Gardenhire (1,646) and the Phillies' Charlie Manuel (1,161) are the only other active skippers who have completed the feat with their respective teams. Tigers manager Jim Leyland joined the group on Sunday.

Maddon has compiled a 514-486 record over the course of seven seasons with the Rays, who were 518-775 before his arrival.

Maddon also became the fifth manager in the modern era to have managed at least 1,000 games for one team without ever playing in the Major Leagues.

The others were Earl Weaver (Orioles, 2,541 games), Joe McCarthy (Yankees, 2,348), Jim Leyland (Pirates, 1,716), Danny Ozark (Phillies, 1,105), and Leyland (Tigers, 1,000).
