Henley to be Minor League field coordinator
The Nationals have decided that Bobby Henley will be their Minor League field coordinator for the 2010 season.
He spent last season as the manager for the Gulf Coast Nationals and Spring Training catching coordinator. Henley was even an extra coach for the Major League club in September of 2006.
What does the promotion for Henley mean for Tim Foli, who was offered the job last month? He could go be back as manager of Triple-A Syracuse or he could have a permanent position as a Major League coach. He spent the last month of the ’09 season as an extra bench coach.
Foli and general manager Mike Rizzo were not available for comment.
