There will be a few familiar faces – to me and long time Timber Rattlers fans at least – when the Clinton LumberKings visit Time Warner Cable Field in late April.
The Clinton LumberKings, in conjunction with the Seattle Mariners, have announced the LumberKings’ coaching staff for the 2011 season. Former Pulaski manager Eddie Menchaca will become the 44th manager in Clinton franchise history and will be joined by former Everett pitching coach Rich Dorman and trainer Jake Naas. Hitting coach Terry Pollreisz is the only returning member of the 2010 staff.
Terry Pollreisz managed the Timber Rattlers in 2008.
Rich Dorman pitched for the Timber Rattlers in 2003.
Eddie Menchaca played for the Timber Rattlers (along with four other teams in the Seattle system) in 2002. Menchaca also came back to fill in as hitting coach for a few games in 2007.
