Oh, wow, now you've done it, chico! You've really opened a can of worms on this one.
I'm sure you know there is a raging debate on this topic in the baseball world.
Here is a quote from wikipedia at the Burt Shotton
"According to an informal study by researchers at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the last manager to wear street clothes is believed to be Burt Shotton of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who last managed a game on October 1, 1950. (Yet Connie Mack, who famously wore a full suit during his 50 years as manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, also retired on October 1, 1950)."
