Braves Hire Larry Parrish As New Hitting Coach

New, 124 comments

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.
