Biographical Information[edit]


The 2004 International League Manager of the Year with the Buffalo Bisons, Marty Brown signed to manage the Hiroshima Carp in 2006, replacing Koji Yamamoto. Brown had played with the Carp from 1992 to 1994, following parts of 3 seasons in the big leagues. His best year in Nippon Pro Baseball was 1993, when he hit .276/.325/.523 with 27 homers. In his first year in Japan, he set a NPB record for manager ejections three times in a season. He had been ejected 22 times in his three prior years in the US. By 2010, he set the career record in NPB with 9 ejections.

Brown left the Toronto Blue Jays organization after the 2013 season and joined the Washington Nationals as a Pacific Rim Coordinator/Scout, a position he held through 2017.

While scouting for the Nationals, Brown kept his eye on the future and opened Brown's Baseball Academy in Missouri. The facility was still in operation in 2020 and possibly beyond.
