Girardi Selects Scioscia and Geren as All-Star Coaches

As part of winning the World Series last season Yankees manager Joe Girardi gets to manage this year’s All-Star game. In addition to his own staff he has also picked a couple other managers to serve as coaches for the AL All-Star Team.

Here is more from Chad Jennings of the Journal News:

Joe Girardi has named Angels manager Mike Scioscia and Oakland Athletics skipper Bob Geren as the A.L. coaches. Scioscia, a two-time All-Star as a player, managed the A.L. All-Stars in 2003 and served as an A.L. coach in 2002. Geren, a San Diego native, has led the A’s since 2007 and will be in the A.L. dugout for the Midsummer Classic for the first time.

Girardi’s Yankees coaches – pitching coach Dave Eiland, bullpen coach Mike Harkey, first base coach Mick Kelleher, hitting coach Kevin Long, bench coach Tony Peña and third base coach Rob Thomson – will comprise his staff along with Angels head certified athletic trainer Ned Bergert and Seattle Mariners head athletic trainer Rick Griffin.
