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 managers who have regular season win percentages greater than .540. Both lists are current through the games of July 12 of the 2015 Major League Baseball season.

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.

Bruce Bochy is the active wins leader with 1,664 managed wins. The active manager closest to surpassing 1,000 wins is Clint Hurdle, who has 920 wins and 975 losses for a .485 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).
