Louis Victor Piniella (b: August 28, 1943) is a former MLB outfielder and manager. He has been nicknamed "Sweet Lou", both for his swing as a major league hitter and, facetiously, to describe his demeanor as a player and manager. He finished his managerial career ranked 14th all-time on the list of managerial wins.
Piniella played for the Kansas City Royals from 1969-73, and was the American League’s Rookie of the Year in 1969 and was named to the 1972 All-Star Game. Piniella was the first player to come to bat in Royals history.
After the 1973 season, Piniella was traded by the Royals with Ken Wright to the New York Yankees for Lindy McDaniel. He played with the Yankees for 11 seasons. During this period, the Yankees won five AL East titles (1976–78, 1980 and 1981), four AL pennants (1976–78 and 1981), and two World Series championships (1977–78).
Piniella won the AL Manager of the Year Award in 1995, and again in 2001 when he led the Mariners to a record-tying 116 wins.
