Cal Ermer
Original name: Calvin Coolidge Ermer
Birth: Nov. 10, 1923
Baltimore County

Death: Aug. 8, 2009
Hamilton County

Major League Baseball Player, Manager. He appeared in one game with the Washington Senators on September 26, 1947 and recorded three at bats. He would spend the next fourteen years (1947 to 1961) in the Minor Leagues as a second baseman and manager, including six successful seasons (1952 to 1957) with the Chattanooga Lookouts before returning to the Major League level as a coach with the Baltimore Orioles in 1962. During the 1967 season, Ermer replaced Sam Mele as manager of the Minnesota Twins and guided them to a record of 66 wins and 46 losses (91 wins and 71 losses overall), nearly capturing the American League Pennant with a second place finish one game behind the Boston Red Sox. He was replaced as Twins' manager following the 1968 season and succeeded by Billy Martin (which was his first Major League managerial assignment) after the team fell to a seventh place finish. Among his other coaching stints are the Milwaukee Brewers (1970 to 1971) and Oakland Athletics in 1977. Ermer returned to the Minor Leagues as a manager in 1978, and remained there until his retirement in 1984. (bio by: C.S.)
