The Oakland Athletics have hired Al Pedrique as their first base coach. Yankee fans know Al as the AAA Scranton Wilkes Barre's manager. Pedrique managed them for 5 seasons, most notably leading the RailRiders to a Triple-A National Championship Title in 2016
Many fans thought Pedrique would at least get an interview for the formerly vacated major league managerial position. However, the Yankees had other plans.
The Yankees will now look to fill Pedrique's position down in Scranton.
