Worcester Gets Rich

The new Can-Am League Worcester (Name to be Named later) franchise has reeled in two former Fenway citizens as manager and pitching coach: Rich Gedman, Manager and Bobby Ojeda, pitching coach - according to Lenny Megliola in the MetroWest Daily News and a news release on the Can-Am site.
The team is making a smart move here, getting known and respected Red Sox players with local ties to headline their entry into this market. Nice way to get a good head start on your PR effort, and start generating some fan interest immediately in the fledgling franchise.
Good luck to Rich and Bobby. Now, we need a name for the franchise, which we hope will be revealed soon.
