With hitting coach Billy McMillon taking over as Greenville Drive manager for 2010, former manager Kevin Boles gets a logical promotion to High Class A Salem.
Almost without exception, Minor League managers are photographer-friendly, even though we get in their way sometimes. But Kevin was especially good to us, and went out of his way to make sure we got what we needed.
Kevin didn’t particularly like having his own photo taken, though, so I was happy to grab these shots when I could. I think he probably just wanted to make sure we were concentrating on the players.
