Video: Bill Buckner Talks About Managing The Brockton Rox

Bill Buckner, Brockton Rox manager

The name Bill Buckner was once a painful name to utter for Red Sox fans, but since the death of the curse in 2004, all has been forgiven and Bill’s blunder forgotten. The former first baseman for the Sox returned to Fenway Friday night to provide color commentary for the Chicago Cubs broadcast, but that’s not the only regional work he’ll be doing this baseball season. Buckner will play the role of manager this summer for the Brockton Rox of the Can-Am Independent League.

Buckner served as hitting coach for the Chicago White Sox in 1996 and 1997 and says that he’s always wanted to manage in the majors. For now though, the former National League hitting batting champion will start out small in Brockton.

My interactive YouTube sports show Sports Ch@t was granted access to Rox Media day and their full season. We went down to see how excited the team is to have the former Major Leaguer as their skipper in 2011.

The Rox are set to open up their season at home on May 26 against the Worcester Tornadoes. More information about the Rox and ticket purchases can be found on their website at BrocktonRox.com

About Brian Moller - @Brian_Moller

Hi I'm Brian Moller and I am addicted to sports. I love everything that involves my Boston sports teams. I'm pursuing a career in sports journalism. I've been lucky enough to have done internships at Comcast SportsNet New England and WHDH 7 News in the sports department. During those internships I've been in the locker room and on the field talking to some of Boston's biggest stars. I also host my own ridiculous sports talk show on my town's local access channel called Sports Ch@t. Hope you enjoy my writing and hopefully I'll be coming through your TV someday.
