Peter Mackanin, Jr. (pronounced "ma KAN in") (born August 1, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois) is a former second baseman and manager in Major League Baseball who most recently served as the acting manager of the Cincinnati Reds, having replaced Jerry Narron in 2007 before being replaced at season's end by Dusty Baker. He is currently the bench coach for the Philadelphia Phillies.



Mackanin was drafted by the Washington Senators in the 1969 Major League Baseball Draft and made his debut with them in 1973, after they moved and became the Texas Rangers. In a 9-year career, he also played for the Montreal Expos, Philadelphia Phillies, and Minnesota Twins. He played in 548 games.

After retiring as a player, Mackanin spent many years managing and coaching in the minor leagues. He became the Expos' third base coach in 1997 and spent four years in that position. After managing the minor league Hickory Crawdads and Lynchburg Hillcats in 2001 and 2002, he became the bench coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates for the 2003 season. After Lloyd McClendon was fired, Mackanin served as the Pirates' interim manager for the last month of 2005, leading the team to a 12-14 record. He spent the next season managing in the Pirates' minor league system at Bradenton.

Mackanin was hired by the Cincinnati Reds as a scout for the 2007 season, but when the team fired manager Jerry Narron on July 1 of that year, he was named the club's interim manager. Narron had led the Reds in the first half of the 2007 season to a league-worst 51 losses, but during Mackanin's tenure, the team had a winning percentage above .500. The Reds decided not to hire Mackanin on permanently for the 2008 campaign, instead deciding on veteran experience with Dusty Baker.[1]


Personal life

He is a graduate of Brother Rice High School in Chicago.

Mackanin is married to Nancy and they have one son, Shane.
