Albuquerque: Welcome Tim Wallach
Albuquerque, welcome your new Isotopes manager, Tim Wallach.
Tim is a tremendous baseball man. He spent 17 seasons in the big leagues, and three playing for me. Our farm director, De Jon Watson, decided to hire Tim because of his vast knowledge of the game, and I congratulate him on his wise decision.
Tim is going to be an outstanding manager. Like I said, he knows the game very well, he loves baseball, and he loves young players.
He is a good teacher, just ask Adrian Beltre. When Tim was our batting coach Beltre hit 48 home runs.
I know Tim will have a great impact on our young players and help them make the next step from triple-A to the big leagues.
Good luck, Tim. I’ll see you soon in Albuquerque.
