Brewers Announce 2015 Coaching Staff

Posted: Updated:

The Helena Brewers announced today that Field Manager Tony Diggs will return in the same capacity for the 2015 season. This will be his third season as manager of the Helena team.

“Helena is a special place for me,” Diggs said via phone. “This is where my career began and there's nothing better than baseball in a Montana Summer.”

Diggs played in Helena in 1989 after being drafted in the sixth round by the Milwaukee Brewers. He spent eight seasons with the Brewers and Cardinal organizations. After stints in Australia and with the St. Louis Cardinals organization, he returned to the Brewers in 2004 and has remained with the organization in some capacity ever since.

Joining Diggs in the dugout will be Pitching Coach Rolando Valles and Hitting Coach Jason Dubois. Both coaches worked in Helena during the 2014 season as well. Also returning is Athletic Trainer Luke Greene and Strength and Conditioning Coach Tim Gifford.

“It's a good feeling to have the whole staff return. We all know our expectations and how we all think. The more experience we gain, the easier it is to instruct,” Diggs said.

The Brewers open the season at home on June 18 vs. the Missoula Osprey, Rookie Affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

“Were excited to have Tony for another season,” said President/ General Manager, Paul Fetz. “He's easy to work with and since he played here, our fans can relate to him better than any other manager we've had,” said Fetz.
