Early Life

As bench coach for the Angels, Maddon won a World Series Championship in 2002. Maddon coached under managers Buck Rodgers, Marcel Lachemann, John McNAmara, Terry Collins, and Mike Scioscia.

Tampa Bay Rays

In November of 2005, Maddon was hired as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays. The team was in a rebuilding phase and held the lowest payroll in baseball at the time. But in 2008, the Rays won the American League pennant with Maddon snagging his first Manager of the Year award. He won American League Manager of the Year again for the 2011 season in which the Rays clinched the American League Wild Card and made it to the American League Division Series. At the end of 2014, Maddon decided to opt out of his contract despite an aggressive push by the team to re-sign him.
