New Marlins Manager…

Congratulations to former Charlotte Knights catcher Mike Redmond, who was named as the new manager of the Miami Marlins today (November 1, 2012).

Redmond, a former Marlins player, appeared in 22 games in 1997 for the Knights and 18 games for the club in 1998. The Knights back then were the Triple-A affiliate of the Marlins and Redmond was a part of a 1997 team that won 76 games for manager Carlos Tosca.

In 1997, the Seattle, Washington native had a .213 batting average with one home run and two RBIs. A year later, the 6’1″ backstop hit .241 with two home runs and seven RBIs.

Originally signed as an amateur free agent by the Marlins in 1992, Redmond spent parts of 13 seasons in the Majors. From 1998-2004, he hit .284 with 11 home runs for the Marlins and was a member of the club’s World Series winning squad in 2003. He spent 2005-2009 with the Twins, and finished his career in 2010 with the Indians.
