Minor-league Manager[edit]

Jewett spent seventeen years as a manager in Minor League Baseball, mostly in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, including nine and a half seasons managing at the Triple-A level.

In 2009, Jewett began his first of two years as a manager in the Nationals' minor league system. He led their High-A affiliate, the Potomac Nationals, in 2009 before being promoted to manage the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs for 2010.
