  • Report: A's going after Hershiser?

    Athletics to interview Hershiser news services

    Oakland Athletics: The A's requested permission to speak to Texas pitching coach Orel Hershiser and have received it from the Rangers, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

    "I want to work with people who have high aspirations,'' Hershiser told the paper. "This [interview process] is a normal part of life in baseball -- these opportunities come up from time to time. But I'm still excited about the opportunity to be the Rangers' pitching coach.''

    Hershiser had two complete-game victories against the A's when the Dodgers won the 1998 World Series.

    The A's have already talked to their bullpen coach Bob Geren and third-base coach Ron Washington.[/b][/quote]
