Ex-Sox Hero Gomes Hired As AZ Rookie Hitting Coach

We all remember his heroics in the 2013 Championship season. Jonny Gomes was one of the most popular of The Bearded Band Of Brothers, and his Game Four HR in the World Series was a watershed moment that turned things around for the team. The Carmine Hose would go on to win the series in six games at Fenway Park. Now, the Arizona Diamondbacks have hired Gomes as their rookie-level hitting coach. If he can impart his enthusiasm, guile and pure clutch to his young hitting pupils in Arizona, this will be the bargain of the century for the Diamondbacks. We wish the best of luck to Jonny in his new role.
