Manny Acta Biography
Manny Acta was born January 11, 1969, in San Pedro de Macors, Dominican Republic and is a former manager of the Washington Nationals in Major League Baseball. In the Dominican Winter League, he managed the Tigres del Licey from 20022004, including leading them to victory at the 2003 Caribbean Series. Acta managed the Dominican Republic team at the 2006 World Baseball Classic.
After holding this position for two years, Acta was hired on November 14, 2006, by the Nationals, returning to the team that gave him his first major league job (the Nationals being the former Expos who had relocated after the 2004 season). Acta received the job for his youth and enthusiasm, as well as knowing a few of the Nationals players from his third base coaching job with the Expos. In his first season with the Nationals, Acta did a credible job managing the team that was projected to be one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball. He is one of the few managers who is aware of and employs sabermetric ideas and concepts, similar to those used by A's GM Billy Beane and Red Sox GM Theo Epstein. With his team beset by many injuries, Acta maintained a positive influence on his young Nationals. In his first year with the Nationals he earned votes for NL Manager of the Year, coming in sixth in that contest.
On July 12, 2009, Acta reported to ESPN Deportes' Enrique Rojas that he had been fired as Nationals manager following a 5-0 loss to the Houston Astros. The Nationals announced on their website on July 13 that an announcement concerning the dismissal was forthcoming, which served as a confirmation of the firing. Nationals bench coach Jim Riggleman has taken over as manager.
