Parrish Named Mud Hensí New Manager
November 22, 2002

Former Detroit Tigers manager Larry Parrish will be in charge of the Class Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens next season.

Parrish replaces Bruce Fields, who was promoted to hitting coach for the Tigers.

Parrish has been a scout for Detroit the last three seasons after he was fired as Tigers manager following the 1999 season. Detroit finished 69-92 in Parrish's only full season on Detroit's bench.

It will be his second time in Toledo. He managed the Mud Hens for the second half of the 1994 season, taking over for Joe Sparks.

Parrish will join hitting coach Leon Durham and pitching coach Jeff Jones on the Toledo staff.
