Ned Yost Biography
Ned Yost was born August 19, 1955, in Eureka, California and is a former Major League Baseball catcher and manager of the Kansas City Royals.
On October 29, 2002, Yost was named the Brewers manager, succeeding Jerry Royster. National League manager Tony LaRussa named Yost to be part of his coaching staff for the 2005 MLB All-Star Game.
Yost's tenure oversaw a revitalization of the Brewers franchise, leading them from losing records to championship contender. His teams were plagued by inconsistency, most notably sqandering a large lead in the division during the 2007 season and a significant advantage in the wild card race in 2008. Yost finished 7th in voting for Manager of the Year in 2007.
Yost was fired on September 15, 2008, after a two-week skid by the Brewers. Third-base coach Dale Sveum was named as his interim replacement and served until the end of the season, leading the Brewers to clinch the wild card spot on the last day of the season for their first trip to the post season since 1982 when they made it to the World Series.
