Not long ago, former Reds closer Doug Bair was standing in line at the will-call window to see his 23-year-old daughter, Heather, star in a production of Chicago in Vero Beach, Fla.

His phone rang with a job offer. Now he's in Reds camp mulling the possibility of becoming the pitching coach for Cincinnati's Rookie League team in Billings, Mont.

He said Tuesday he's leaning toward accepting. It continues an effort led by Reds owner Bob Castellini to bring more former Reds players into the spring training and minor-league instruction system.
