Former Nat LeCroy to Manage Class A Suns
The Hagerstown Suns, one of the Nats' low-level Class A affiliates, today announced their 2009 staff, which includes a new manager, Matt LeCroy, whose name might sound familiar. Indeed, LeCroy, a big leaguer for eight seasons (2000-07) spent 2006 with the Washington Nationals, where he appeared in 39 games, mostly as a catcher and first baseman. This is his first managerial job. He replaces Darnell Coles, who earlier this week was named as a hitting coach with Class AAA Syracuse.
Here's how the rest of the staff shapes up...
Tony Tarasco is coming back for his second year as the hitting coach.
Rich Gale, who spent the previous three years in the Florida organization, is the new pitching coach.
Jeff Allred will be returning as the trainer.
And Ramon Aviles will join the team in early June in a coaching role after managing the organization's spring training program in Viera, Fla. Aviles last year managed the Class A Vermont Lake Monsters.
