I also had the opportunity to talk hitting with coach Mark Harris and I’ll be posting that here in the next couple of days. Until then, here is an outtake from my discussion with Daubach that didn’t make the final cut:
Q: Speaking of togetherness within the coaching staff, you and Tripp Keister (manager at Potomac in 2014) go back a long way. How nice is it to be able to pick up the phone and trust his opinion on a player that was just promoted from him
A: It’s a big help. Actually Tripp and I lived together when we played in Binghamton a few years after that. He was also my third-base coach when I managed in indy ball too. He knows what I can expect out of guys. Our managing styles are similar. But, yeah that’s a big help. Hopefully, I’m a big help to the guy above me as well. But to just know a guy for 20-some years when he’s sending me players, I definitely know what to expect.
• Saul Rivera (’02, ’04-’05) surrendered a grand slam to Phillies’ prospect Sebastian Valle in the deciding sixth inning as Puerto Rico fell to Mexico in the Caribbean Series championship. Tyler Herron (’13) excelled as the closer for PR as he saved three games including a 1-2-3 ninth in the 2-0 semifinal win over Venezuela.
