The life of a baseball manager is demanding. They are part coach, mentor, mediator, task-master, tactician, field general and sometimes even father figure.
Each manager brings his own unique style into his job as well. Some are considered player-friendly, others more disciplined in nature. Some work well with veterans, others with youngsters. It's also a job that requires constant communication with ownership, management, players and the media alike.
In the course of baseball history, managers have been known to completely break down their emotions and let it all out, so to speak. Some might vehemently argue a call on the field, others finally get brutally honest about the bad play of their team, and some simply spark an argument simply to motivate their team.
