Baseball Manager

Power

Major league managers have tons of pull when it comes to decisions made on the field: who plays where, who pinch runs, who pinch hits, who sits, and who steals, bunts, or swings away. The manager has the ability to make or break the careers of young players, but loses some authority when dealing with superstars. It's a trade-off. Fifty home runs and a bad attitude might be worth the headache.
