Sandy Alomar Jr. joining Acta's staff as 1B coach
That guy directing traffic at first base at Progressive Field next season will be a familiar face to Tribe fans. Sandy Alomar Jr. is coming back to the Indians.
Manager Manny Acta, nearing the completion of his coaching staff, has hired Alomar to be his first base coach. Alomar will also work closely with the Tribe’s catchers.
Alomar had a job as a catching instructor with the Mets, but his acceptance of the position with the Indians makes for a homecoming, of sorts. Alomar spent 11 seasons with the Tribe from 1990 to 2000. While with them, he was a six-time All-Star and a leader on the field on Tribe teams that won five AL Central titles and two AL pennants. The Indians gave Alomar a fitting tribute when was a he was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame this past summer.
