Hooray! News!: But it’s old, I just never got around to posting it after I returned from Canada. Anyway, Ryan Dunleavy from The Courier News reported that Somerset Patriots hitting coach Liam Healy has resigned from his position.

It was also noted in the article that former Patriot Kevin Dattola applied for the Newark Bears managerial position, but I can tell you that he is not a candidate for that job. However, Dunleavy did suggest that Dattola would be a logical choice to replace Healy, and I agree that’s a move that might make some sense.

Dattola has spent the past few seasons as a hitting coach for the Can-Am League’s New Jersey Jackals. – Mike Ashmore

Any reason given yet why Healy resigned. Ialways though he did a good job for the Pats. Hopefully it’s for a better position in affiliated ball.

I just found out that joe Pinto, Barnstormers gm is stepping down. I saw this on http://www.sportscentral.com if you want to read about it. Wow…i don’t think anyone here saw this coming. I for one will miss Joe….he is a really nice guy and i enjoy talking to him. he did a heck of a job for us over the last few years and this is a complete shock to me!

So, Joe Pinto leaves the Barnstormers. Think he’d go to the Bluefish? What’s up with their GM search?

Just remember, for the most part, the GM doesn’t do the player transactions. The GM runs everything else in the minor and independent leagues. Owners, managers and coaches for the most part take care of signing the players.

I really doubt Joe will go to Bridgeport…he is leaving to spend more time with his family. I don’t know about anywhere else but in talking with a few Lancaster players, Joe was very involved in that aspect of the team. So I would not think that joe will be moving to Bridgeport.
