Sox name Tim Bogar first base coach


The Red Sox have filled the opening on their coaching staff by naming Tim Bogar first base coach. Bogar spent 2008 as an assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Rays, with duties including infield and base running instruction, but additionally working with the front office and scouting department on advance series preparation and scouting. In this role he was not a uniformed member of Manager Joe Maddon's staff, but sat in the stands observing as would a scout. Bogar, a nine-year former major leaguer, managed in the Indians and Astros organizations, leading his teams to the post season three out of four seasons, and was twice named Manager of the Year (Appalachian League, 2004; Eastern League, 2006).
