CINCINNATI (AP) - New Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker has
started picking his coaching staff.
The Reds announced today that Dick Pole will stay as pitching
coach. He had the same job for five years when Baker managed in San
Francisco. Pole joined the Reds last season.
The Reds also extended the contracts of third base coach Mark
Berry, first base coach Billy Hatcher, hitting coach Brook Jacoby
and bullpen catcher Mike Stefanski.
Bullpen coach Tom Hume was not offered another contract after 11
seasons on the staff.
Baker hasn't hired a bench coach yet.
