Best Answer

Yes, actually, that is the reason they wear uniforms today because in many cases the coach was also a player. A team can put anyone on the roster, however, in today's game there is a lot of things going on in a managers head, so it would be difficult for him to both manage and play. In addition most managers are well out of their prime and have retired from playing ball for a reason, but none the less. A coach or manager could be placed on the active roster if the franchise wanted to do that, much like a player could manager if that is what the franchise wanted to do
