Sidewinders pitching coach Mike Parrott and daughter Randi work a softball drill before a recent game at Tucson Electric Park.

When Tucson Sidewinders pitching coach Mike Parrott is having a trying day at the office, he knows his assistant can cheer him up.Parrott's 18-year-old daughter, Randi, has been accompanying him to the ballpark since she was 12."She is sometimes the calm in the storm," said Parrott, who's been handling Sidewinders pitchers since 2002."She kinda helps me put things in perspective when I start thinking things are getting out of control or we might be going through a hard spell."Sometimes all I have to do is remember what's really important and there it is, sitting right next to me."Randi, a soon-to-be college softball player, helps her dad by sometimes typing his reports on pitchers, shagging fly balls during batting practice and offering encouragement when the team struggles."She'll point out, 'So-and-so is getting better.' It's a reminder how bad it seems, there are some good things happening.She always reminds me, 'Dad, you are a good pitching coach, no matter what happens,' " Parrott said with a laugh.Parrott, who pitched for the Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners from 1977 to 1981, also helps Randi hone her softball game.He hits her groundballs to work on her fielding and they have also practiced her throwing mechanics."My dad and I are really close.It's definitely something most fathers and daughters don't get to do," Randi said.Duties around the ballpark: Randi has shadowed Parrott in his seven seasons as Sidewinders pitching coach.She also visited him when he was a pitching coach for the D-backs in the California League from 1999 to 2001.
"There's going to be some time she's going to be off on her own and have her own family," Parrott said.
