Oaks Managers

The longest serving managers were the Howard brothers, beginning with Del Howard's seven year term in 1916, through his brother Ivan's successive seven year tenure concluding in 1929. Oaks managers Sharpe, Howard, Stengel, and Dressen guided their teams to PCL championships in 1912, 1927, 1948 and 1950 respectively. Peruse now the careers of these Oakland managers.
