Pawsox To Hire Gary DiSarcina
Thursday, December 13, 2012
He was born in Billerica, Massachusetts and currently lives in Plymouth, Mass. Now, Gary DiSarcina will be caling Pawtucket, Rhode Island home as he will officially be introduced as the Pawsox new manager at a noon time press conference Friday at McCoy Stadium.
DiSarcina most recently served as special assistant to the general manager for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim but missed managing and wanted to be home with his family.
Ironically, he was offered the Pawsox managerial job two years ago but turned it down because then Angels GM Tony Reagins convinced him to join his staff.
DiSarcina spent 12 sesons in the Majors with the Angels playing mostly shortstop. He also previously spent time in the Red Sox organization as manager of the single A Lowell Spinners for 3 seasons.
He will replace former Pawsox manager Arnie Beyeler who is now the Boston Red Sox first base coach. Beyeler led the Pawsox to the International League Championship in 2012.
