Monday Night, the Greensboro Grasshoppers faced the Asheville Tourists for the first time this season. And for the first time in 13 years, Joe Mikulik was NOT managing the Tourists. Joe was well known for his antics with the umpires when he questioned a call, he entertained many fans, as demonstrated here in a video from Lexington.
Baseball players move, coaches move; but Joe stayed… Until this year. Joe was named roving Outfield Coach by the Texas Rangers.
The Hickory Crawdads are part of the Texas Rangers organization, we might see Joe when Hickory is in town; but I doubt we will ever see him tossing bats and bases around the ball park.
