The longest-serving manager in Spokane Indians history will add to his record this summer.
The Indians announced Thursday that Tim Hulett will return for a ninth season with the Northwest League club.
Hulett, 54, has managed a club-record 607 games, compiling a regular-season record of 305-302. His Indians won the NWL championship in 2008 and advanced to the divisional playoffs last season.
Hulett’s staff will remain nearly untouched. Pitching coach Jose Jaimes and hitting coach Rick Down will return for their second seasons, and strength and conditioning coach Ed Yong will be back for a seventh season. Spokane’s new trainer will be Dustin Vissering, who worked for the parent-club Texas Rangers’ Arizona Rookie League team in 2014.
Last season’s first-base coach, Salomon Manriquez, will join the AZL Rangers’ staff.
