Ernie Whitt (born June 13, 1952 in Detroit, Michigan) is a former Major League Baseball player noted for being an original player for the Toronto Blue Jays when they broke into the major leagues in 1977. He currently serves as the Blue Jays' bench coach.
Whitt also served as Toronto's first base coach for most of the 2005 season, after former first base coach Mickey Brantley was switched to the position of hitting coach to replace the fired Mike Barnett. He reverted back to his bench coach position after Marty Pevey, the manager of the Syracuse SkyChiefs (the Blue Jays' AAA affiliate), was called up in September to fill the vacant first base coach role.
Whitt managed the Canadian National Team to a 3rd place finish in Pool B at the 2006 World Baseball Classic. Whitt is now a Canadian citizen after spending many years working in Canada.
