Ruben Amaro Jr. is getting ready for his new role
On Monday, the Boston Globe published a story about ex-Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.‘s decision to take a job with the Boston Red Sox as their new first base coach and how he’s preparing for spring training.
“When I was let go, it was like one door closed and another one opened up,” Amaro said. “I’m still in decent health; I’m fairly young. I wanted to scratch that itch to get back on the dirt. I wanted to understand the player a little better.
“It’s a significantly different world from when I was playing and what motivates a player and what is going on off the field. I want a better understanding of that. Hopefully this is something I like.”
It will be interesting to see how Amaro’s return to the field goes.
