Andy Etchebarren, who led York Revolution to two Atlantic League titles, dies at age 76

Andy Etchebarren, the manager who led the York Revolution to two Atlantic League championships, has died.

Etchebarren was 76. He death was first announced by the Revs and Major League Baseball.

“It is with great sorrow that we inform our fans of the passing of our beloved Andy Etchebarren,” the Revs posted on the team’s Twitter site on Saturday night. “Etch was the second manager in Revolution history and led the team to its first two (Atlantic League) championships. He will be missed by baseball fans everywhere.”

A former All-Star catcher with the Baltimore Orioles, Etchebarren became York’s manager during the 2009 season, replacing another ex-Orioles catcher, Chris Hoiles.
