Though he was a player for 21 years and a coach in the major leagues for 12 years, Al Vincent is best remembered for his 12-year career as a manager in the Texas League. For five years as a Texas League manager (1946 to 1950), he led his teams (Dallas, Tulsa) to the playoffs. Each team (Dallas in 1946, Tulsa in 1949) won titles, and Dallas captured the Dixie Series crown. He managed 34 players who went on to the major leagues, including such stars as Schoolboy Rowe, Dizzy Trout, Hal Newhouser and Virgil Trucks. During his 12 seasons in the major leagues, Vincent coached at Detroit Tigers(1943-1944), Baltimore Orioles (1955-1959), Philadelphia Phillies (1961-1963) and Kansas City Athletics(1966-1967). He was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1979.
