The Cincinnati Reds during the recent off-season have been shoring up there minor league coaching staffs.

Ken Griffey, Sr. will be the new hitting coach at Single-A Dayton.

After his baseball career, which included stops with Cincinnati, the Yankees, Atlanta and Seattle, Griffey coached five seasons with the Reds from 1997-2001. Since then, he has been a special assistant to Reds’ general manager and a roving batting instructor.

Griffey is someone that can give young players the inspiration and instruction they need to make to the major leagues. He is a link to the greatest Reds teams, having been one of the regulars on the World Series champions of 1975 and 1976. He also played on Western Division championship teams in 1973 and 1979 as well as the 1981 team that had the best record in baseball but failed to make the playoffs during that strike-shortened season.

during his big-league career, Griffey hit .296 with 152 home runs and 859 RBI’S,  while usually hitting second in the Big Red Machine batting order between Pete Rose and Joe Morgan. Senior, who was the MVP of the 1980 All-Star Game, is also a member of the Reds Hall of Fame.

Former MLB infielder DeLino DeShields will be the new field manager for the Billings Mustangs in 2010. DeShields, the Mustangs hitting coach in 2009, replaces manager Julio Garcia. After managing Billings the last two seasons, Garcia accepted the managerial  post with the rookie Arizona League Reds in Goodyear, Arizona.

DeShields, 40, enjoyed a 13-year major league career Montreal, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Baltimore and Chicago Cubs. He was Montreal’s first-round draft pick in 1987 and turned down a basketball scholarship to Villanova University to sign with the Expos. He made his major league debut in 1990 and finished second in the National League Rookie of the Year balloting that season.

He finished his career with Cubs in 2002 and wound up with a lifetime batting average of .268 with 80 homers and 561 RBI’S. His  463 career stolen bases rank him among the top 50 all-time base stealers.

The Double-A Carolina Mudcats barely missed the first half title in David Bell’s initial season as a manager. But that didn’t stop the Reds top management from rehiring him for the 2010 season.

Bell was 65-74 with the MudCats in his first season. The 37 -year third generation major league player spent 12 years with Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Cleveland, St. Louis, Seattle and San Francisco. He was the only member of his baseball playing family not to don a Reds uniform-unlike grandfather Gus, father Buddy or brother Mike.
