Are you ready, Myrtle Beach!!??!?!?!
Brad Holman, Wisconsin’s pitching coach from 2002-2005, is taking his pitching knowledge and his guitar to Myrtle Beach next season. Holman will be the pitching coach of the Pelicans.
Brad Holman moves up to Myrtle Beach, along with many of the Rangers young hurlers, after the past two seasons in the same role with Low-A Hickory (NC). A draft pick of his hometown Kansas City Royals in 1990, the 6-5 right-hander cracked the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners in 1993. Since 2002, the now 42-year-old alumnus of Auburn University at Montgomery has tutored pitchers at the Single & Double-A levels. His older brother Brian also pitched in the big leagues for the Expos & Mariners.
The folks in Myrtle Beach better be ready for the Holman tradition:
