Carl Schneider, who has been with the Astros organization since 1989, became the Astros clubhouse manager in 2011. While with the Astros, Schneider has worked 10 Astros playoff runs, four All-Star Games (1998, 2003-04, 2018) and three World Series (2005, 2017, 2019).
For his efforts in 2017, Schneider was named the winner the 2017 Pete Sheehy Clubhouse Award (Clubhouse Manager of the Year), which is given out annually to a home and visiting clubhouse manager, and voted on by the MLB Clubhouse Manager’s Association.
Schneider originally joined the Astros in 1989 as a bat boy and also handled clubhouse duties during the baseball season. He joined the home clubhouse staff full time in 1995 and would work in that role until assuming the clubhouse manager duties in 2011.
A Texas native, Schneider currently resides in Houston with his wife, Emilie, and their sons Zachry and Max and daughters Amie and Madyson. Schneider’s oldest son, Zach, is currently a freshman left-handed pitcher at Truman State University in Missouri.
