The Dean of Frontier League managers, Gateway’s Phil Warren reached another milestone Thursday at GCS Credit Union Ballpark.
Rookie Dustin Woodcock hit a walk-off home run to give Gateway a 5-3 win over Schaumburg. The win also gave Warren, now in his 13th season as the Grizzlies manager, 600 victories for his career.
A St. Louis native, Warren ranks third in Frontier League history in wins. Prior to taking over as Gateway’s manager in 2006, Warren 41, spent three of his six seasons as a player in the Frontier League with the Grizzlies. He retired in 2005 with several team records, including most games played, hits, home runs, and RBIs.
