KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kansas City T-Bones manager John Massarelli got his 850th career win Sunday afternoon with the T-Bones’ 2-1 walk-off win in 10 innings over Laredo at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.
“I’m not one to reflect during the season but my first instinct with this is that it tells me I’ve been around for a long time,” Massarelli said. “I don’t know how many losses I have, but I remember those more than the wins.
“More than anything right now, I’m glad for our guys that they’ve turned things around a little bit.”
With the win, the T-Bones have won seven in a row and are currently 37-42. With 21 regular-season games remaining in 2016, Massarelli is 134-144 with Kansas City. He is currently third on the Kansas City T-Bones/Duluth Dukes’ franchise record for managerial wins, behind Al Gallagher (217) and Andy McCauley (136).
Massarelli, who began his full-time managerial career in 2000 with Auburn, the Houston Astros’ short-season single-A team in the New York-Penn League, has a career managerial record of 850-680 in 14-plus seasons.
