The Braves are going to announce Larry Parrish as the team's new hitting coach later today. Parrish is currently the manager of the Detroit Tigers' triple-A team.
During his playing days, Parrish played for the Montreal Expos and Texas Rangers. He slugged 256 home runs but had just a .318 on base percentage. Hopefully, this means he can help some hitters out with their power stroke.
Earlier this month, Terry Pendleton was moved to first base coach, creating a vacancy in the hitting coach position. After interviewing a few candidates, it appears that the Braves felt most comfortable with Parrish.
