After graduating from Bishop Walsh School in Cumberland, Perlozzo was drafted by the Twins after playing college ball at George Washington University. His professional baseball career included parts of two seasons as a reserve with the Minnesota Twins and San Diego Padres, along with one season with the Yakult Swallows in 1980.

Going into the last game of the 1977 season Perlozzo's teammate, Rod Carew, had 99 RBIs. Perlozzo started the game at shortstop in place of Roy Smalley, and just as Perlozzo was about to bat for the first time in the game, manager Gene Mauch grabbed him by the arm and said, "I want you to go up there and hit a triple, right now, this at-bat. You hit a triple, understand?" Perlozzo did hit a triple, and Carew hit a single to gain his 100th RBI of the season.[1]

With the Orioles, he was promoted from bench coach to interim manager after manager Lee Mazzilli was fired on August 4, 2005, during the team's worst losing streak of the season. The Orioles went 23–32 under Perlozzo that season. On October 12, the "interim" title was dropped as Perlozzo was named the team's manager. In 2006, Perlozzo's first full season as manager of the Orioles, the team finished with a 70–92 record.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos fired Perlozzo as the team's manager on June 18, 2007.[2] Perlozzo was replaced by Bullpen coach Dave Trembley on an interim basis then, after some success, had the interim tag removed.

On November 5, 2007 the Seattle Mariners announced that Perlozzo had been hired as their third base coach.

In 2009, he was hired as 3rd base coach by the Philadelphia Phillies. He was moved to 1st base coach for the 2011 season after another former O's manager Juan Samuel joined the Phillies staff as 3rd base coach. On October 3, 2012 he was dismissed.

List of Baltimore Orioles managers

In its 118-year history, the Baltimore Orioles baseball franchise of Major League Baseball's American League has employed 42 managers. The duties of the team manager include team strategy and leadership on and off the field. Of those 42 managers, 12 have been "player-managers"; specifically, they managed the team while still being signed as a player. Since 1992, the team has played its home games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.The Baltimore franchise began operations in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as the Brewers (not to be confused with the current National League team of the same name) in 1901. After one season in Wisconsin under manager and Hall of Famer Hugh Duffy, the franchise moved south to St. Louis, Missouri, adopting the St. Louis Browns name and hiring a new manager, Jimmy McAleer. The Browns remained in Missouri until the end of the 1953 season, when Major League Baseball's owners elected to move the franchise to Baltimore, Maryland, where they were renamed the Orioles, after Maryland's state bird.Seven managers have taken the Orioles franchise to the post-season; Earl Weaver led the Orioles to a team-record six playoff appearances. Weaver, Hank Bauer, and Joe Altobelli are the only managers who have won a World Series championship with the club: Bauer in the 1966 World Series, over the Los Angeles Dodgers; Weaver in the 1970 World Series, over the Cincinnati Reds; and Altobelli in the 1983 World Series, over the Philadelphia Phillies. Weaver is the longest-tenured manager in franchise history, with 2,541 games of service in parts of 17 seasons (1968–1982, 1985–1986). The manager with the highest winning percentage in his career with the franchise is Luman Harris, owner of a .630 winning percentage during his 27 games managed in 1961; conversely, the worst winning percentage in franchise history is .222 by Oscar Melillo, who posted a 2–7 record during the 1938 season. Eight Orioles managers have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, including Frank Robinson, who was the first African-American manager in Major League Baseball; and Rogers Hornsby, who was a member of the cross-city rival Cardinals during the franchise's tenure in St. Louis.
