The Evansville Otters have hired former Indiana University catcher Bobby Segal as their new hitting coach.
“I would like to thank (Otters manager) Andy McCauley and the Otters ownership for the chance to return to professional baseball in a community where the tradition is so rich,” Segal said in a written statement. “My focus on the day-to-day process will give the loyal ownership and community something they will be proud of. My family is excited to follow Andy’s winning brand of baseball and is grateful to become a part of Otter Ball.”
He was the Gary RailCats’ hitting coach in 2013 and served in the same capacity as Wabash Valley College the past three years.
The Otters open at home against Schaumburg on May 13.
