Dave Roberts

Manager, Los Angeles Dodgers

Since being named Dodger manager on Nov. 23, 2015, Dave Roberts has led the Dodgers to five consecutive division titles, three National League pennants, and the 2020 World Championship. The 2016 National League Manager of the Year, Roberts has managed the Dodgers to a 436-273 (.614) record over his five years at the helm, including 100-win seasons in 2017 and 2019, when the club set a franchise record with 106 wins.


A speedy outfielder, Roberts played in the Majors for 10 seasons with the Cleveland Indians (1999- 2001), Dodgers (2002-04), Boston Red Sox (2004), San Diego Padres (2005-06), and San Francisco Giants (2007-08). In 832 career games, he batted .266 with 243 steals – none more famous than his legendary steal of second base in Game 4 of the 2004 American League Championship Series to help the Red Sox rally to defeat the New York Yankees and subsequently win the franchise’s first World Series title in nearly a century. Following the conclusion of his playing career, Roberts joined the Padres’ front office in 2010 before joining San Diego’s coaching staff as its first base coach (2011-13) and bench coach (2014- 15).


Roberts was a multi-sport standout at Rancho Buena High School (Vista, CA) and played college baseball at UCLA, where he continues to hold the school’s career record for stolen bases and was inducted into the Bruins’ Sports Hall of Fame in 2020. Off the field, Roberts, the first minority manager in Dodger franchise history, makes countless community appearances each year to help inspire Los Angeles’ future leaders and provide comfort to those in need. A Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, Roberts sits on the Board of Directors at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dave and his wife, Tricia, are co-owners of Red Stitch winery in the Napa Valley and enjoy spending time with their two children, Cole and Emmerson.
