Senior Advisor, Player Personnel
Ron Schueler brings 41 years of professional baseball experience to the Giants in 2009. The widely respected baseball veteran will work closely with Brian Sabean and Dick Tidrow on evaluations and acquisitions of Major League players. He will also be directed by Sabean on a variety of assignments on both the major and minor league levels.
Schueler, 60, brings a wealth of baseball knowledge, having previously served as the Chicago White Sox General Manager for 10 years from 1990-2000. Over his tenure, the White Sox compiled an 817-734 (.527) mark, finished first or second in their division in eight of his 10 seasons, and won division titles in 1993 and 2000. The White Sox were named "Organization of the Year" by Baseball America in 2000. After stepping down from running Chicago's day-to-day baseball operations following the 2000 campaign, he served as a senior vice president and special consultant to chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. Most recently, he served as a special assistant to the general manager with the St. Louis Cardinals from 2005-07, helping them to the 2006 World Championship and two division titles. Prior to that, he was a special assistant to the president and general manager of the Cubs during the 2003 season.
The Hays, KS native compiled a 40-48 record as a pitcher over eight Major League seasons with Atlanta (1972-73), Philadelphia (1974-76), Minnesota (1977) and the White Sox (1978-79). When his playing career ended in June 1979, he was hired by the White Sox as the club's pitching coach. He served in that capacity through 1981 before joining the Oakland Athletics as pitching coach from 1982-84. He held the same duties with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986 before joining the A's front office, where he received a World Series ring in 1989 as a scout and special assistant to then general manager Sandy Alderson.
