Myrtle Beach 2001 Coaching Staff Named

The Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans have announced their coaching line-up for the 2001 season. In keeping with the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” the Pelicans’ major league affiliate the Atlanta Braves called back Brian Snitker to manage the Pelicans for a third season, along with pitching coach Bruce Dal Canton. Mike Graus will return as trainer for a third season as well. Coach Tommy Gregg will be the only new face among the four minor league staff positions.

At the end of this past season, he was named the Carolina League’s Manager of the Year; he is also a two-time Braves’ Minor League Manager of the Year. The 2001 season will be his 25th with the
Braves organization. Snitker has managed in the minor leagues for the Braves since 1982, with a two-year stint coaching the Atlanta Braves bullpen from 1988-1990. Previous to his coaching career, Snitker played catcher for the Braves for four seasons.
