Dickerson named 3b coach, McLouth official
The Orioles have named Bobby Dickerson third base coach.
Dickerson, 47, spent the last three seasons as the Orioles’ Minor League Infield Coordinator and has been a minor league coach or manager for the last 20 years in the Orioles, Diamondbacks and Cubs organizations.
“Bobby has been in this organization for eight years as a coach and three as a player and he is regarded as one of the best infield instructors in the game,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter, who managed Dickerson for two seasons (1987-88) in the Yankees organization, said in a statement. “Bobby’s been with our major league club the last two Septembers and during spring training so he is familiar with our personnel, he has experience in Latin America and has been around a lot of winning teams. It is also great to be able to promote from within the organization.”
The Orioles also made official the signing of Nate McLouth to a one-year contract for 2013. Their 40-man roster is now full.
