List of Major League Baseball managers by wins

This article contains a list of all Major League Baseball managers with at least 1,000 career regular-season wins, as well as a list of managers who have regular season win percentages greater than .540. Both lists are current through the games of August 31 of the 2018 season.

Connie Mack, who managed the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years, is the all-time leader in both wins and losses. Due to their length of service, seven of the top ten managers (in wins) also appear in the top ten in losses.

Bruce Bochy is the active wins leader with 1,916 managed wins. The active manager closest to surpassing 1,000 wins is Bud Black, who has 808 wins and 850 losses (a .487 record).

The only managers with over 1,000 losses but fewer than 1,000 wins are Terry Collins, who has 995 wins and 1,017 losses (a .495 record) and Phil Garner, who has 985 wins and 1,054 losses (a .483 record).
