Connie Mack baseball card, 1910. Connie Mack is the all time leader in career wins and losses by a manager.

This article contains a list of all Major League Baseball managers with at least 1,000 career regular-season wins, as well as a list of the managers who have win percentages greater than .540 and have managed at least 600 games. This list is current through the games of April 5, 2014.

Connie Mack, who managed the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years, is the all-time leader in both wins and losses. Due to their length of service, seven of the top ten managers (in wins) also appear in the top ten in losses.

The active manager closest to making this list is Clint Hurdle, who has 782 wins and 868 losses for a .474 winning percentage. The only manager with 1,000 losses but not 1,000 wins is Phil Garner who has a 985-1,054 record (.483). Bruce Bochy is the active wins leader.
