DiSarcina named PawSox Manager
The Governor’s Cup Champion Pawtucket Red Sox will have a new man at the helm in 2013. The Red Sox announced today that Gary DiSarcina will be the new manager for the PawSox. A native of Billerica, Mass, DiSarcina leaves the Angels organization, where he was the special assistant to general manager. He is familiar with the Boston organization, as he has spent time in 2006 as a baseball operations consultant. He also served as the Lowell Spinners manager from 2007-2009, leading them to two division titles. In 2010, he was promoted to Red Sox minor league infield coordinator.
DiSarcina has 12 years of major league experience under his belt, all with the Angels. In 1,086 games played, the shortstop hit .258 with 28 homers and 355 RBIs. He was a 1995 All-Star, a year that saw him bat .307. He ended his career as a member of the PawSox before retiring. Some fans may also remember DiSarcina in the NESN studio, where he appeared on the pre and post game shows.
DiSarcina replaces Arnie Beyeler, who was promoted to Boston 1st base coach. Beyeler had been managing the team for two seasons, leading them to a division title in 2011 and a Governor’s Cup title last year.
