Returning for a second year on the Peninsula Oilers staff, last year’s pitching coach Brian Daly will be getting an upgrade.
Daly has been named head coach for the Oilers’ 2016 campaign, and the way Oilers baseball operations manager Mike Baxter sees it, the Champaign, Illinois, native is already cut out for the job.
“I like to say, he already knows how to (pronounce) ‘Kenai,’” Baxter said with a laugh.
“He knows our system, he travels with the team, and I’m impressed with him.”
