Diamondbacks add Baylor, Young to coaching staff
The Arizona Diamondbacks have added former Colorado Rockies hitting coach Don Baylor and former Rockies second baseman Eric Young Sr. to their coaching staff for the 2011 season.
Baylor served as the Rockies hitting coach during the 2009 and 2010 seasons but the team decided not to bring him back for 2011, replacing him with former Colorado Springs hitting coach Carney Lansford. Baylor, who had been offered a special assistant job in the Rockies organization, will be Arizona’s hitting coach under manager Kirk Gibson.
Young will be the the Diamondbacks’ first-base coach.
