Billy McMillon was named 2010 manager of the Greenville Drive today. Drive hitting coach for the past two years, he was also an All-American ballplayer at Clemson and a former Major Leaguer.
McMillon takes over for Kevin Boles, who was named 2010 manager for the Salen Red Sox, one step higher up the professional ladder.
Two great guys in two important positions for the Sox organization. Boles and McMillon led the Drive to the Championship Series this year.
The Greenville Drive press release adds: McMillon “will be joined by former major leaguers Luis Lopez and Kevin Walker, both of whom were with the Lowell Spinners last season, as hitting coach and pitching coach, respectively. The trio of McMillon, Lopez, and Walker have combined for a total of 23 years of Major League service.”
