The architect of state-of-the-art teams in both Kansas City and Atlanta, Schuerholz switched careers in his mid-20s – going from middle school teacher to front office executive. He became the youngest general manager in baseball in 1981 with the Royals, fine-tuning the roster into the club that would win the 1985 World Series. Moving to Atlanta in 1990, Schuerholz quickly turned the Braves into a National League powerhouse, winning five NL pennants and the 1995 World Series from 1991-99 – making him the first GM in history to capture World Series titles in both leagues.
