Bochy, Yost name All-Star coaches
Mattingly, Price will join NL; and McClendon, Hinch named to AL staff
The 2015 All-Star Game managers have chosen their respective coaching staffs, with National League skipper Bruce Bochy selecting the Dodgers' Don Mattingly and the hometown Reds manager Bryan Price, while American League shipper Ned Yost will be flanked by Houston's first-year manager A.J. Hinch and Seattle's Lloyd McClendon.
It will be the third time in the past five years that Bochy, whose Giants won their third World Series since 2010 last season, will manage in the Midsummer Classic (he also managed the NL club in 1999 while with the Padres). It's Yost's first go-around, having managed both the Brewers and now the Royals in his 12-year career.
The game will be held July 14 at Great American Ball Park, the home of the Reds, and will be televised by FOX.
"With Donnie growing up a Reds fan and Bryan being there, it's an honor for them," Bochy said.
While Hinch, whose surprising Astros are in first place in the AL West, makes his All-Star Game coaching debut, it'll be the second time for McClendon, who was on Dusty Baker's NL staff at the 2003 All-Star Game in Chicago.
Mattingly served on Joe Torre's All-Star Game staff in 2004 in Houston, while Price will be making his All-Star Game coaching debut at his home ballpark.
"I'm excited about it," Price said. "You know, I've never been to an All-Star Game, it's going to be great to be around Bruce and his staff while we're playing in Cincinnati. It's going to be a great experience. It's an honor to have this opportunity, for sure."
Both Bochy and Yost are bringing their respective teams' coaching staffs, as well.
Bochy's staff from San Francisco -- assistant coach Shawon Dunston, bullpen coach Mark Gardner, first-base coach Bill Hayes, third-base coach Roberto Kelly, batting coach Hensley Meulens, pitching coach Dave Righetti and bench coach Ron Wotus -- will join him in Cincinnati, while Yost will bring his Royals coaching staff consisting of pitching coach Dave Eiland, catching coach Pedro Grifol, bullpen coach Doug Henry, third-base coach Mike Jirschele, first-base coach Rusty Kuntz, hitting coach Dale Sveum and bench coach Don Wakamatsu.
The trainers for the AL squad will be Adam Nevala (head athletic trainer of the Angels) and Paul Harker (assistant athletic trainer of the Rays), and the NL trainers will be Reds head athletic trainer Paul Lessard and Rockies assistant trainer Scott Gehret.
