Tony Beasley Steps Down as AAA Syracuse Manager; Will Become Minor League Infield Coordinator

syracuse chiefs

Tony Beasley who was the AAA Syracuse manager since 2011 has stepped down and will replace Bob Henley as the minor league field coordinator. Here is the official tweet from James Wagner of the Washington Post.

Minor league positions change so much that most people don’t even notice. Things are going so fast at the major league level that it is hard to keep up with everything going on. The only time you really hear things is when a minor league manager or coach makes it to the bigs and become apart of the major league staff.

Last season at Syracuse with the Chiefs, Beasley led them to a 66-78 record which was good for last place in the North division of the International League. His job is to win, but more importantly get those players major league ready. He is now stepping into a role that will do that full time, one on one with the infielders. This will help the Nationals organization overall, as he steps into this role and keeps pushing the young players to get better.
