 Cito Gaston: on top of the baseball world. (baseball manager) - Ebony - HighBeam Research
When Cito Gaston was splitting time growing up in San Antonio and Corpus Christi, Texas, he had a little difficulty deciding exactly what he wanted to do for a living.
But in reality it is Cito's direction, his strategy, his knowledge of the game and his uncanny ability to get the most out of his players that probably will serve as the wheels that carry him straight into the Hall of Fame.
By the time Cito was traded from the San Diego Padres back to the Atlanta Braves in 1974, he already had shown what he could do on the field (his career best year came in 1970 when he posted a batting average of.318, 29 home runs and 93 runs batted in).

 ESPN.com: MLB - Prospectus: Bret Boone's fluke season   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
A familiar name is on top, though Cito Gaston is better known today as a former manager than for his playing career.
Cito set career highs in batting average (.318, next best was.269, on-base percentage (.364 vs..313), and slugging percentage (.543 vs..405).
In Boone's defense, one could argue that Boone is getting shafted because we didn't consider that Boone's second-best year, 1994, was a strike-shortened one, and he may have gone on to post a high MLV had their not been a labor stoppage.

 BBTF's Newsblog Discussion :: Toronto Star: Gaston looking even better in hindsight
Olerud started all but 11 games in 1994, started all but 9 games in 1995, and it wasn't until 1996 that he sat significant amounts of time, and then he was hurt and not hitting a lot and not hitting at all against lefties, and he still played every day against righties.
I've always figured Cito didn't get another job as a mixture of race, attitude (he said he wouldn't take just any manager role, it had to be the right one), and not having the right contacts in the right places.
Cito's biggest strength, though, was in his ability to assemble veteran players into an arrangement where they can succeed.

And Toronto rehired Cito Gaston as hitting coach, even though the former manager clashed with Green when the outfielder first made the big leagues.
Gaston, who certainly would not be Green's choice as a mentor, was brought back into the mix; and, those coaches who Green did like were fired to allow Fregosi to bring in some of his cronies.
I'm now convinced that retrieving Gaston from the scrapheap was a deliberate tactic, intended to ostracize Green from the organization so that money would be less of a factor in the young outfielder's decision about whether to sign a long-term contract in Toronto.
