December 7, 2021

Omar Antonio Malavé (Cumaná, Sucre; January 17, 1963-Dunedin, Florida; November 22, 2021) [1] was a Venezuelan baseball player, coach and manager who served as manager of the Lara Cardinals with which he became champion , Leones del Caracas and Navegantes del Magallanes of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League. He was the brother of fellow baseball players José Francisco Malavé and Benito Malavé.


Malavé played his entire LVBP career with the Lara Cardinals from 1980 to 1990. He also played in the minor leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays from 1981 to 1989. Always tied to the Toronto Blue Jays, Malavé coached in the minor league system from 1991-2009 and 2011-2012. In 2010 he was first base coach for the Blue Jays. [2] In 2013 he was Latin America operations coordinator for the organization, and in 2014 he again took over as manager of the Dunedin Blue Jays (Class A Advanced). [3]

Return to Venezuela

In Venezuela he has accumulated eleven campaigns as a strategist with Cardenales de Lara (1996-97 to 1999-00 and later 2006-2007), Caribes de Oriente and Caribes de Anzoátegui (2001-02 to 2002-03 and 2009-10), Leones del Caracas (2003-04 to 2005-06), and Navegantes del Magallanes (2017-2018). In this journey, the two consecutive titles obtained with Cardinals in the 1997-98 and 1998-99 races and the runner-up with Caracas in 2004-05 stand out. In the 2005-06 season he resigned from the leadership of the hairy men due to the bad streak he was going through and the pressure of the fans, leaving Carlos Subero in office, who would ultimately crown the team champion both in the LVBP and in the Series from the Caribbean.


He passed away on November 22, 2021 at his residence in Dunedin, Florida. [4]
