D. J. Boston To Retun to Pioneer Park

D. J. Boston was the Greeneville Astros hitting coach in 2008. That team which consisted of prospects such as Jay Austin, Jose Altuve, Albert Cartwright, Freddy Hernandez & Kody Hinze; struggled to a team batting average of .257 (7th out of 10 in the Appy). For the last two seasons, Boston has been the hitting coach in the GCL for the Astros.

It was announced yesterday that he will be the hitting coach for the 2011 Danville Braves. Boston will be a part of the staff of new Danville Manager Randy Ingle, who managed Rome of the Sally League last year. It will be odd not seeing Paul Runge in the Danville dugout this summer, he has been the manager since 2005.
