Shane Spencer to coach in South Korea next season
Former Mets and Yankees outfielder Shane Spencer will not return as the Somerset Patriots’ third base coach and hitting instructor in 2016.
Spencer has accepted the position of field coordinator and manager for the Nexen Heroes’ minor league system in South Korea.
“I want to thank the Somerset Patriots organization for a wonderful time while I was coaching there. I was sad to say that I was leaving for a coaching position in Korea, but it is an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up,” Spencer said in a team press release.
