Just like Chad Epperson and Kevin Boles before him, Bruce Crabbe
is thrilled for the opportunity to enter the Carolina League
Originally from Virginia, Crabbe begins his seventh year as a Red Sox minor league instructor, a tenure that has included roles as hitting coach, infield coordinator, and manager of the Lowell Spinners in 2006 and 2010.
Last week, Crabbe
journeyed from his
Orlando home to the Roanoke Valley for the Salem Red Sox Hot Stove Banquet, a great event that-along with Pitchers and Catchers reporting on Monday-kicked off the countdown to April 8, when the Carolina League season officially begins.
Before enjoying a delicious dinner and speaking to many dedicated fans, Crabbe
indulged my interview request and shared some stories about his
time in the Red Sox organization
, what he
aspires to do this season, and how he'll spend the next month and a half leading up to April 8.
