Brook Jacoby

You read it first right here on RHM: Brook Jacoby has been hired as the Reds' hitting coach, replacing Chris Chambliss.

Jacoby was with the Reds farm system as a coach from 2000-2002. He's also got some experience at the MLB level, serving as interim hitting coach with the Rangers.

As a player, Jacoby played 11 seasons (primarily at 3B) with the Indians, Braves, and A's. He was an All-Star in 1986 and 1990. He retired as a player after the 1992 season.

    Thanks, HMZ. It’s good to know that someone is keeping the RHM content up-to-date around here.

    My pleasure, O Graduated One (I’m not about to call you Cylindrical One).

    I did get a bit of a chuckle out of this announcement, recalling that an article I read somewhere earlier this week, and cannot seem to locate now, quoted our well-informed manager, Jerry Narron, as saying that the focus was on hiring a pitching coach first.

    But, I dunno, maybe Narron got that from the baseball writers in New York.
