Youngest Manager..Lou Boudreau. Took over as manager of the Cleveland Indians in 1942 at the age of 24. Boudreau would serve as player/manager of the Indians for nine seasons, guiding them to a World Series title in 1948.

Bucky Harris was 27, when he was chosen to be the manager of the Washington Senators, on February 10, 1924. The Senators would go on to win the World Series making Harris the youngest manager to win a World Series. Boudreau was 30 when he guided Cleveland to the Title.

Both men have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of fame.

Roger Peckinpaugh was 23 when he was named interim manager of the New York Yankees in 1914. He managed the final 20 games of the season and had a record of 10-10. Interestingly, Peckinpaugh was Harris' shortstop on the 1924 Senators that won the World Series over the New York Giants.
