Chip Hale New Diamondbacks Manager: Twitter Reacts
By Joseph Jacquez
When the Arizona Diamondbacks announced that Oakland Athletics bench coach Chip Hale would be the franchise 7th manager, twitter reacted, and most of the feedback on the hiring was positive. Here is some of what twitter had to say about Hale.
First from Susan Slusser, who covers the Athletics for the San Francisco Chronicle:
Former Diamondbacks OF Eric Byrnes also weighed in on his former coach being hired by the Diamondbacks:
The Oakland Athletics official twitter account congratulated Hale:
Besides reaction from outside the organization, plenty of people from inside the Diamondbacks organization chimed in including Dbacks play by play man Steve Berthiaume:
Diamondbacks Team President Derrick Hall reacted by saying that this was a great day for the organization and for Dbacks fans:
Hale is a University of Arizona alum and helped lead the Wildcats baseball team to a National Championship in 1986. He is also the Wildcats all time hits leader. So of course Arizona Baseball reacted to the hiring:
Most of the Diamondbacks fans that I talked to loved the hiring by Chief Baseball Officer Tony La Russa, and General Manager Dave Stewart. They were really excited that he was coming home to Arizona, and they were excited for 2015.
We here at venomstrikes would like to congratulate Chip Hale, and hope that he can lead the Dbacks to the playoffs in 2015!
