3) Tony Mansolino

Tony Mansolino is the third base coach for the Baltimore Orioles. Mansolino, 39, will be entering his second season as their third base coach after serving as an MLB or minor league coach for the Cleveland Indians from 2011 through 2020. He was a minor league hitting coach for five seasons and then started as a minor league manager for the Indians. He served one season at each Single-A, High-A, Double-A, and he topped out at Triple-A in 2019.

He joined the Indians MLB staff in 2020 as their interim third base coach when manager Terry Francona was out. Their bench coach, Brad Mills, opted out of the season so first base coach, Sandy Alomar, Jr., became the interim manager. Third base coach Mike Sarbaugh became the acting bench coach and Mansolino took over at third and Kyle Hudson as first base coach.

Entering the 2020 season, Mansolino was the team’s defensive coordinator, replacing Kai Correa, who left to join the San Francisco Giants as their bench coach.

Mansolino is also the son of Doug Mansolino, who was a bench, first base, or third base coach for the White Sox, Brewers, Tigers, and Astros and a few other organizations as a minor league coach or manager in the 1990s and 2000s.
