Bobby Mitchell to Manage Trenton In 2016

The Trenton Thunder officially announced on Tuesday afternoon that Bobby Mitchell, formerly with the Atlanta Braves organization, will replace Al Pedrique and serve as the tenth manager in team history.

The 60-year old Mitchell, who spent the previous two season serving as the Braves Minor League Outfield/Baserunning Coordinator, managed in the Chicago Cubs organization from 2013-2013 with Rookie-level Mesa.

Prior to his stint with the Cubs, Mitchell was with the Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim for nine years from 2003-2011, including five as a manager with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Salt Lake.

Mitchell is a product of USC and was a seventh-round draft selection by the Dodgers in 1977. The outfielder spent four years in the big leagues with Los Angeles and the final two of his career with the Twins from 1982-1983.

Additionally, Mitchell has served as the Minor League Outfield/Baserunning Coordinator for the San Diego Padtes, Boston Res Sox, and Montreal Expos.

Former Trenton Manager Al Pedrique confirmed to Pinstriped Prospects last week that he was leaving the team after one season to manage Triple-A Scranton in 2016.

Organizational sources told Pinstriped Prospects on Monday that Mitchell is “a bright baseball guy who will bring a ton of knowledge and two decades worth  of minor league coaching experience with him to Trenton.”
