Biographical Information[edit]

After his playing career ended, Al Pedrique spent several seasons as a minor league coach and manager. He managed the 1995 Spokane Indians, 1996-1997 GCL Royals, 1999-2000 Michigan Battle Cats, 2001 El Paso Diablos and 2002-2003 Tucson Sidewinders.

He was a coach for the 1998 New Orleans Zephyrs. He served as an Arizona Diamondbacks coach in 2004 before being promoted to interim manager in mid-season. The D-Backs were having an awful season when he was named to the job, and did not improve at all under his leadership. After the 2004 season, he joined the Houston Astros organization and worked in the team's front office as a special assistant to the general manager. He was the director of Latin American operations in 2007. In 2009 he became the Astros' minor league field coordinator. Pedrique was a coach for the Astros from 2010-2012, then returned to the minors as manager of the Charleston RiverDogs in 2013. He had significant success with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees, in 2016 and 2017, leading them to the Triple-A Baseball National Championship the first year and the league finals the second.

In 2018, he returned to the majors when he was named first-base coach of the Oakland Athletics after having been considered for several managerial openings that off-season. In 2020, he switched to the third base coach position. In 2021, he was back managing in the minors, with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. In 2022, he was named third base coach of the Miami Marlins but only stayed for one season.

His uncle Obdulio Pedrique played for the Venezuelan national team and later managed in Venezuela.
