MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Pelicans manager Buddy Bailey captured a milestone with the minor league franchise on Sunday.

The Pelicans’ 7-1 over the Augusta GreenJackets gave Bailey his 400th career win with the team between his first stint from 2016-2018 and since his return in 2021.

This year also marks Bailey’s 35th as a minor league manager, the longest tenure of any active minor league manager. He also has over 2,300 career victories to his credit.

Bailey has already led the Pelicans to a first-half division title this season, clinching a spot in the Carolina League playoffs for the second straight year.
