Contents

Amateur career

Listach played college baseball for the( Mclennan Community College Highlanders Waco, Texas)and the Arizona State Sun Devils. In the 1988 NCAA Division I National Championship Wichita State defeated Arizona State by a score of 7-4. The game was played at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska.

Professional career

Listach was drafted in the 5th round of the 1988 Major League Baseball Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.

Listach's best professional season was in 1992, his rookie year. After being called up from the minor leagues by the Brewers in April, Listach became a vital member of a team that won 92 games and contended for the American League playoffs. Listach's 54 stolen bases in 1992 ranked only behind the total of Kenny Lofton, another prominent rookie from Cleveland Indians during that season. Listach would go on to win the 1992 American League Rookie of the Year award.

In 1996, Listach was traded to the New York Yankees with Graeme Lloyd for outfielder Gerald Williams and pitcher Bob Wickman. Listach was intended to be a backup outfielder, as the Yankees made the trade specifically to acquire Lloyd.[1] However, Listach had suffered what was first thought to be a bruise two days prior to the trade, which turned out to be a broken bone in his foot.[2] The Yankees returned Listach to the Brewers, accepting shortstop Gabby Martinez instead.

Listach played only 52 games in the Majors after 1996, all for the Houston Astros in 1997. Listach spent 1998 with the Triple-A affiliates of the Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Phillies before retiring.

Managerial career

Listach became a manager in the Chicago Cubs minor league system. He managed the Double-A West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx in 2006, the Tennessee Smokies in 2007, and the Triple-A Iowa Cubs in 2008. In 2008, Listach was honored as Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year by peers and league media representatives for leading the Iowa Cubs to an 83-59 record and a playoff appearance.

Listach became the Washington Nationals' third base coach starting with the 2009 season.[3]
