Hidden blessings: A manager and bench coach reunite to steer the Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — When the baseball turned against them, which wasn’t wholly unexpected because it turns against everyone here and there, that’s when Jerry Narron would turn his head toward Ron Roenicke, and Roenicke would know what Narron was about to say.

He’d want to hear it anyway. Almost needed to hear it.

Roenicke was manager of the Milwaukee Brewers for four seasons and 25 games starting in 2011. Narron was his bench coach for every inch of 684 games. They’d lived this thing from every angle for so long — as prospects and players and released players and coaches and managers (and, one day, as fired managers) — they bore all the same riches and scars.

They believed in the same God and believed there was one way to play the game and believed those religions were not entirely separate. They also believed in each other.

This wasn’t exactly what Frank Loesser meant with “I Believe In You”, is it?

Red Sox Name Jerry Narron As Bench Coach After Three Seasons With Diamondbacks

When the Boston Red Sox named Ron Roenicke the interim manager, they needed to fill the void of bench coach that was left behind.

And now the team has its guy.

The Red Sox on Saturday announced they have named Jerry Narron as the bench coach. Narron previously was with the Arizona Diamondbacks as a part of their coaching staff. Narron also served as Boston’s bench coach in 2003.
