Former Red Sox first baseman Brian Daubach has been hired to manage the Hagerstown Suns, the low Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals. The move puts him in line to be No. 1 pick Bryce Harper’s first manager in professional baseball.
Daubach previously managed the Pittsfield Colonials of the independent Canadian-American league in 2010, and also served as a contributor to WEEI and NESN.
Daubach played parts of eight years with the Marlins, Red Sox, White Sox, and Mets. He spent the bulk of his career with the Boston, where he hit 20 home runs in at least four consecutive seasons from 1999-2002. He played 30 games for the Sox in 2004, and was awarded a World Series ring when they finally won it all.
