Former big league catcher Ned Yost is best known by most baseball fans as the long-time manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. He was named manager of the Kansas City Royals in 2010 Yost began his pro career after being drafted by the New York Mets in 1974. He was acquired by the Brewers after the 1977 season in the Rule V Draft. After playing in the majors for the Brew Crew from 1980 to 1983 (and playing in the 1982 World Series), he was traded along with Dan Scarpetta to the Texas Rangers for Jim Sundberg on December 8, 1983. Rangers manager Doug Rader angered many people in Texas by saying that Yost was an all-around better catcher than Sundberg, a fan favorite in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and an eventual member of the Ranger team Hall of Fame. Yost flopped in Texas, and was released April 1, 1985, after only one season with the club. After being let go by the Rangers, Yost returned to the majors briefly in 1985 with the Montreal Expos, but failed to impress. He was released by the team in spring training of 1986. He finished his playing career in the Atlanta Braves organization in 1987. After his playing career ended, Yost managed three years in the minors before joining the Braves coaching staff in 1991. He was the team's bullpen coach for eight seasons and was their third base coach from 1999 to 2002. In 2003, he became skipper of the Brewers. In 2008 Yost was fired by the Brewers with 12 games left in the season. At the time the team was tied for first in the National League wild card race but had just been swept in a four-game series by their main rivals for a playoff spot, the Philadelphia Phillies. Dale Sveum, his replacement, led the Brewers to a playoff spot. After the game of May 13, 2010, the Kansas City Royals announced that they had fired manager Trey Hillman and that Yost was being brought in to replace him, with the team in last place with a 12-23 record. Yost wears #3 in tribute to his late friend, NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt. He is the son of Ned Yost Jr., an All-American football star at Santa Rosa Junior College. His son, Ned Yost IV, played and coached in the Brewer chain. He is one of four major leaguers born in Eureka, CA. The nearest to Yost in age is Dane Iorg.
