    Billings Coaching Staff 2011

    I've not seen this posted anywhere officially or unofficially but I was on the Mustangs page and see that Pat Kelly is listed as Manager, down from Advanced A. He's probably grateful he didn't have to go to Bakersfield.

    Also, Eli Marrero is listed as the Hitting Coach for Billings. I am assuming this is the ex Cardinals catcher.

    Bob Forsch is the only holdover from past years as Pitching Coach.

    Thanks for the update, muddie. Interesting to see Eli Marrero as hitting coach. He wasn't too much of a major league hitter in his day, but the Jocketty connection probably is the reason for this pairing.

    Marrero was an interesting player -- extremely athletic catcher who could also play OF. Had a decent bat early in his career. I imagine he's bilingual, and that will help in Billings, where there will be a bunch of Latin kids, I imagine.

    Baseball-reference.com says he was born in Cuba. I would imagine he knows Spanish as well as English.
