I always wondered does minor league coaching staffs have as much personnel as a major league roster? Obviously I know that in the minors they don't have an assistant hitting coach. But do they have all have a Manager, Bench Coach, Bullpen Coach, Hitting Coach, Pitching Coach, Bullpen Coach, Third Base Coach and First Base Coach? Or do some of the responsibilities have to be merged into 1 position? Like does the hitting coach also have to coach 1B?

In low A at least....Normally the manager is 3rd base coach and some player sitting out is the 1B coach.

Besides the manager, our team had a hitting coach, pitching coach, a strength coach, a trainer and a "developmental coach", which I'm not sure what their role is. Maybe he is kind of like a bench coach. Occasionally, the parent club will send down specialists for a stint here and there. Back when our team was affiliated with the Cardinals, they'd send down Vince Coleman to teach baserunning once a twice a year. I've seen additional pitching coaches come down, too, and back when they were trying to convert a guy to catcher, some kind of catcher specialist.

I believe the manager is always the 3rd base coach. At least they have been at Memphis.

Jmodene would've been a good source on this. Does anyone have any idea whatever happened to him?
