"Leo Ernest Durocher" (July 27, 1905 – October 7, 1991), nicknamed "Leo the Lip", was an American infielder and manager (baseball)/manager in Major League Baseball. Upon his retirement, he ranked fifth all-time among managers with 2,009 MLB All-time Managerial wins/career victories, second only to John McGraw (baseball)/John McGraw in National League history. Durocher still ranks tenth in career wins by a manager. A controversial and outspoken character, Durocher had a stormy career dogged by clashes with authority, umpires (his 95 career ejections as a manager trailed only McGraw when he retired, and still rank fourth on the all-time list), and the press.
