Former major leaguer Gabe Kapler has been hired as the 54th manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Dodgers’ minor league teams went a combined 1,299-1,128 during his tenure with eight first-place finishes. Their .535 winning percentage over that span was fourth-best among all 30 major league clubs and second-best among all National League teams, trailing only the Phillies (.548).
In 2007, Kapler took a brief hiatus from playing and managed the Greenville Drive, a single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. He also worked as a coach for Team Israel during the 2013 World Baseball Classic qualifying period.
Kapler played parts of 12 seasons in the major leagues for the Detroit Tigers (1998-99), Texas Rangers (2000-02), Colorado Rockies (2002-03), Boston Red Sox (2003-06), Milwaukee Brewers (2008) and Tampa Bay Rays (2009-10). He finished with a .268 batting average, 176 doubles, 82 home runs, 77 stolen bases and a .329 on-base percentage in 1,104 games. He was a member of the 2004 World Series champion Red Sox.
“On behalf of the entire Phillies organization, I am very pleased to welcome Gabe Kapler to Philadelphia,” said Klentak. “Gabe has a track record of leadership, winning, progressive thinking and working with young players, and we fully believe that he is the right person to guide this organization into the future.”
“I’m equal parts honored, humbled and excited by the opportunity with the Phillies, an elite franchise in a city rich in history, tradition, sports excellence and with amazingly passionate fans,” Kapler said. “I believe there is no better place to build a winning environment, and I take that task very seriously.”

The Urban Youth Academy offers free baseball and softball instruction along with education opportunities to kids in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
The Urban Youth Academy (UYA) concept was developed by Major League Baseball. The main objective is to provide inner-city baseball/softball players with a high level of training, physical conditioning, educational support, and assistance with college placement. There can also be additional programs offered for coaching training, umpire training, field maintenance training, and more. The vision is to have an UYA in every Major League city.
The Phillies and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation have been committed to developing inner-city youth baseball since 1989. There have been over 100,000 participants in The Phillies Jr. RBI (AKA Rookie League) and RBI programs since their inception. These programs are for boys and girls ages 8 – 19. The leagues are spread throughout the city for both baseball and softball with over 8,000 participants in 2014.
In April of 2008, the Phillies launched the Red Goes Green program in an effort to lead the way in clean energy movement at professional sports venues. In launching the initiative the Phillies became the first Major League Baseball team to join the EPA’s Green Power Partnership.
