Leo Alexander Fohl (November 28, 1876 - October 30, 1965) was an American manager in Major League Baseball for the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Browns, and Boston Red Sox. Born in Lowell, Ohio, his major league playing career consisted of just five games as a catcher and 17 at-bats over two seasons. In 1915, he took over as manager of the Indians, with his best finish coming in 1918 when the Tribe finished in second place behind the Red Sox. He was dismissed after 78 games in 1919, and resurfaced in 1921 with the Browns; but in 1924, he joined the Red Sox, where he finished his managerial career on a dismal note; his teams never finished higher than seventh place. He finished with a 713-792 (.474 winning percentage) as manager.
