BOSTON (CBS) – The Baltimore Orioles may be interested in hiring Red Sox bench coach Demarlo Hale as their third base coach, according to a Baltimore Sun report.
Hale is still under contract with the Red Sox, but his future with the team won’t be clear until the Red Sox hire a new manager.
If he signs with Baltimore, the 50-year-old Hale would be reunited with O’s manager Buck Showalter. He spent three years with the skipper while in Texas from 2003-2005.
Hale served as the bench coach in Boston for the last two seasons, and the team’s third base coach under Terry Francona from 2006-2009.
