RedHawks Tap Flores as New Pitching Coach

12/23/2013 4:11 PM -

FARGO, ND – The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks have named Freddy Flores the club’s new pitching coach for the 2014 season.  Flores replaces Steve Montgomery, who was named manager of the Sioux City Explorers on December 18.

 

Flores, 39, joins the RedHawks after serving as the pitching coach for the Amarillo Sox in 2013.  His pitching staff in Amarillo finished second in the American Association in strikeouts and was third in fewest home runs allowed.  The Silver City, NM native also served as pitching coach for the El Paso Diablos for a portion of the 2012 season.

 

“Freddy is a young up-an-coming coach who I am looking forward to having on staff,” said RedHawks Manager Doug Simunic.  “In doing our due diligence on him, we have heard nothing but good things about his baseball and pitching knowledge and how he goes about his business.  We feel very confident that we will not miss a beat with this hire and that the top-notch pitching staffs that are a RedHawks trademark will continue.”

 

Flores began his professional baseball career as an infielder in 1997 with the Sioux City Explorers following his college career at the New Mexico Highlands University.  He moved on to the Frontier League with the Chillicothe (OH) Paints and Richmond (IN) Roosters from 1998-2000 before leaving the game to become the women’s softball coach at Western New Mexico University.

 

Flores returned to the diamond as a pitcher in 2008 with the Atlantic City Surf of the Can-Am League, and spent the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons with the Brockton Rox of the same circuit.  In 2012, he was a pitcher/pitching coach with the El Paso Diablos of the American Association before moving to Amarillo last year.

 

Flores is the third pitching coach in RedHawks history.  Jeff Bittiger was the team’s first pitching coach from 1996-2003 and was succeeded by Montgomery in 2004.
