The Ogden Raptors are pleased to announce the hiring of Mike Brumley as manager for the 2008 season. Brumley spent the last three seasons as the minor league field coordinator for the Texas Rangers. From 2002-2004, he managed the Salt Lake Stingers and guided them to a record of 202-229.
His playing career began in 1983 when he was drafted in the second round by the Boston Red Sox (shortstop, University of Texas). He played for 16 seasons in the minor leagues, primarily at the Triple-A level. Brumley did play 295 games in the major leagues (roughly a third of those with Detroit in 1989) with seven different teams.
Joining Brumley in the Raptor's staff will be pitching coach Craig Bjornson (who returns for his third season), hitting coach Henry Cruz (2nd season), and trainer Pete Hite (2nd season). The strength and conditioning coach will be announced at a later date.
