CHIP HALE AND STAFF RETURN TO TUCSON SIDEWINDERS IN 2006
Tucson Sidewinders Manager Chip Hale and his coaching staff for the 2006 season have returned to the Sidewinders, as announced by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Hale will once again be flanked by his 2005 staff of hitting coach Lorenzo Bundy and pitching coach Mike Parrott.
Chip currently ranks 8th in the Tucson franchise’s history for wins by a manager and needs just another 65 wins to move into 4th all-time. Hale’s major league playing career spanned 7 seasons after being drafted out of the Univ. of Arizona in 1987 by the Minnesota Twins.
“Lo” was back in a Sidewinders uniform in 2005 helping in the development of young hitters such as Conor Jackson and Scott Hairston. The 2006 season will be Bundy’s fourth year in the Diamondbacks organization.
“Bird” was once again a steady force guiding a Sidewinders staff that featured 35 different pitchers in 2005. Parrott pitched in 119 major league games over 5 seasons with the Orioles and Mariners.
