Career highlights and awards

Amateur career

Listach attended for the McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas, where he played college baseball for the Highlanders. He transferred to Arizona State University, continuing his collegiate career with the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Professional career

Listach was drafted in the 5th round of the 1988 Major League Baseball Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.

Listach's best professional season was in 1992, his rookie year. After being called up from the minor leagues by the Brewers in April, Listach became a vital member of a team that won 92 games and contended for the American League playoffs. Listach's 54 stolen bases in 1992 ranked second only to the total accrued by Kenny Lofton, another prominent rookie from the Cleveland Indians, during that season. Listach would go on to win the 1992 American League Rookie of the Year award.

In 1996 Listach was traded to the New York Yankees along with Graeme Lloyd for outfielder Gerald Williams and pitcher Bob Wickman. With rookie Derek Jeter installed at shortstop the Yankees intended to use Listach as a backup outfielder, as they made the trade specifically to acquire Lloyd.[1] Listach, however, had suffered what was first thought to be a bruise two days prior to the trade. The injury turned out to be a broken bone in his foot.[2] The Yankees returned Listach to the Brewers, accepting shortstop Gabby Martinez instead.

Listach played only 52 games in the Majors after 1996, all for the Houston Astros in 1997. Listach spent 1998 Spring Training with the Seattle Mariners, who released him before the season. He spent that season with the Triple-A affiliates of the Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Phillies before retiring.

Listach became the Washington Nationals' third-base coach starting with the 2009 season.[3]

Listach served as bench coach for the Chicago Cubs for the 2011 season,[4] replacing Alan Trammell who left to become the Diamondbacks bench coach. Listach was replaced by new bench coach, Jamie Quirk, during the 2011 off-season, and became the Cubs third-base coach for the 2012 season.[5] He became the minor league infield coordinator for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization in 2013.

Listach was hired by the Houston Astros to be their first base coach on October 22, 2013; he was fired by the Astros on October 17, 2014.

Listach then returned to the Mariners' organization when he was named manager of the Class AAA Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League, on January 12, 2015. [6] Following the 2018 season, after compiling a 281-286 record in four seasons, the Mariners announced that Listach's contract with Tacoma was not being renewed.[7]

On July 1, 2019, Listach was announced as the new manager of the Acereros de Monclova of the Mexican League.[8]

List of Milwaukee Brewers seasons

The Milwaukee Brewers are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They play in the National League Central division. Established in Seattle, Washington as the Seattle Pilots in 1969, the team became the Milwaukee Brewers after relocating to Milwaukee the following season. The franchise played in the American League until 1998, when it moved to the National League as part of an MLB realignment plan.As of the completion of the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 3, 2016 (Which resulted in a 7-4 victory), the franchise has played in 7,616 regular season games and compiled a win–loss record of 3,628–3,988. They have a postseason record of 14–18.The Brewers have figured in the MLB postseason picture on five occasions. In the first, the Brewers lost to the New York Yankees in the 1981 American League Division Series three games to two. The following year, Milwaukee won the 1982 American League Championship Series versus the California Angels three games to two. In that year’s World Series, the Brewers faced the National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals. The series went to a decisive game seven and resulted in a Brewers World Series loss. After a 26-season postseason drought that remains the third-longest in the expanded-postseason era, in their third appearance the Brewers won the 2008 National League Wild Card, earning them a berth in the 2008 National League Division Series. Milwaukee lost the series, three games to one, against the eventual World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Most recently, the Brewers won the 2011 National League Central Division title and defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks three games to two in the 2011 National League Division Series. Despite winning game one in the 2011 National League Championship Series they would be eliminated by the eventual World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals four games to two. In 2018, Milwaukee finished the regular season tied with the Chicago Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Brewers defeated the Cubs in a one-game playoff, 3-1, securing the division title and relegating Chicago to the wild card game. The Brewers then swept the Colorado Rockies (who had just defeated the Cubs in the Wild Card game) in the best-of-five set, advancing to the NLCS.

The Brewers’ highest winning percentage (.593) was achieved in 2011 with a record of 96–66. Conversely, the team’s lowest winning percentage (.346) came in 2002 with a record of 56–106.
