David Charles Brundage (born October 6, 1964 in Portland, Oregon) is an American professional baseball manager. In 2014, Brundage will spend his second season as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies' Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.[1]

In 2012, Brundage served as manager of the Gwinnett Braves, Triple-A farm system affiliate of the Atlanta Braves in the International League, for the fourth consecutive season, his sixth straight at the helm of Atlanta's top farm team (prior to 2009, the Richmond Braves).

Brundage attended McKay High School in Salem, Oregon, and Oregon State University. He was selected by the Phillies in the fourth round of the 1986 June draft[2] but never reached the Major League level. Primarily an outfielder—although he appeared in 39 games as a pitcher—his playing career lasted for eight seasons in the Philadelphia and Seattle Mariners' organizations. He batted .275 with 683 hits and compiled a 1–5 won/lost mark on the mound with an earned run average of 3.83.[3] Brundage threw and batted left-handed, stood 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) tall and weighed 190 lb (86 kg).

His managerial career began in the Seattle organization in 1995 in the California League, but he has spent much of his 15-year career at higher levels of the minors, including six years at Double-A with Seattle affiliates in the Southern and Texas leagues, and eight seasons at Triple-A with the Tacoma Rainiers, Richmond/Gwinnett Braves, and the IronPigs. His 2007 Richmond team won the International League championship. He also was Tacoma's batting coach from 1998–2000.

His 16-season win–loss record as a manager through 2013 was 1,157–1,098 (.513).[3]
