TRAVERSE CITY — The Traverse City Beach Bums have added Major League Baseball veteran Greg Cadaret as pitching coach.
Cadaret has 10 years of MLB experience with eight teams, including the Detroit Tigers, as a left-handed reliever.
“We’re excited to add the wealth of knowledge to the pitching staff. Anytime you can add a guy with 10 years Major League experience it makes you much better,” said field manager Dan Rohn.
Cadaret made three appearances in relief in the 1988 World Series for the Oakland A’s, tossing two shutout innings.
He has also worked as a starting pitcher, at one time taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning with the Yankees. Overall he posted a 3.99 ERA in 451 career games while pitching for the Yankees, Angels, Reds, Royals, Rangers, Tigers, Blue Jays and A’s, where he was a teammate of Traverse City manager Dan Rohn.
Cadaret pitched in high school at Central Montcalm and played collegiately at Grand Valley State.
The Beach Bums are bringing in a pitching staff that has experienced a great deal of turnover from last season with just Mike Devine, Kyle Teague and Vladimir Camacho returning.
