First Year Voyagers Manager Charles Poe Keeps Team Relaxed

Posted: Updated:

"I mean it's great. It's laid back - easy days. He doesn't put too much pressure on the guys but he expects that we give a hundred percent every day," said Chevy Clarke, Voyagers OF.

First year Voyager manager Charles Poe is a player's coach who, after being a professional baseball player himself, has found now as a manager, that a relaxed style is his style.

"Managers that I really played my best for were guys that were laid back and got to the point and were straight shooters. So I try to make myself be that way because I would like to play for those guys and hopefully these guys like to play for me," said Charles Poe.

It seems to be working so far. The Voyagers are first half Pioneer League North champions and have clinched a playoff berth for the 8th year in a row, something Poe says is a credit to the White Sox organization as a whole.

"It's really a tribute to the White Sox for putting the staff together here and the players that we have in Great Falls. It's always been a good team here and these guys really compete. The college guys that come here out of school jump right into the system and start working the way the White Sox want them to work," said Poe.

For minor league players, their goal is to win and advance up the ladder, to hopefully end up in the big leagues. But Poe makes sure to remind them that they're all on the same team.

"When we first got to Great Falls I told these guys that we're going to be together for three and a half months. You guys get to know each other, we're going to be a family. We're going to eat, play, fight, whatever together and have arguments so get that stuff all out of your system but one thing we will do is be a unit on the field," said Poe.

And that's exactly what they've become. And it's what Poe says they'll continue to be so long as number 44 is managing the ball club.
