Camden Riversharks name 2012 coaching staff

Good morning and happy Sunday. I’m catching up with a few things from Thursday that no longer seemed so important by the time I had time to write about them that evening.

The Camden Riversharks have announced their 2012 coaching staff, and it will have a familiar face to Newark Bears fans.

Ron Karkovice will join new manager Jeff Scott as his bench coach. Karkovice had been a Newark Bears coach since 2009. A 12-year veteran of Major League Baseball, Karkovice spent his entire playing career with the Chicago White Sox. He caught Wilson Alvarez‘s no-hitter in 1991 and hit an unconventional inside-the-park grand slam in 1990.

Scott, who had been the Riversharks’ pitching coach for the past three seasons, previously managed the Atlantic League’s Road Warriors franchise in 2006 and 2007.

Rounding out Camden’s coaching staff is former infielder Brett Bonvechio, who played for the Riversharks from 2008-2010.

  1. Nice photo of Karkovice- let’s hope the next similar photo taken show fans in the seats.

    Anyone know what happened with Von Hayes, the Riversharks former manager?


    • If I’m remembering the right game, it was freezing in Newark that day & we thought about leaving early. 🙂

      Not sure why Von Hayes left the Riversharks’ dugout – I posted this mainly for any Newark fans who were curious about where Ron Karkovice was.


  2. Ok sounds good. I’m trying my best to fill in the gap between the end of football to the beginning of baseball.

    I went to the NY Islanders game last night and today I’m taking in the Harlem Globetrotters show in Nassau County.

    It gives me an excuse to go to the Kansas City Smokehouse on Hempstead Turnpike- one of the best BBQ restaurants I’ve eaten in.
