The Czech Baseball Association announced the coaching staff for the upcoming World Baseball Classic Qualifier in Mexico. The head coach remains Mike Griffin. Griffin begins his fourth season as a coach of Czech national team. His assistants will be Corey Lee, Trot Nixon, Hynek Čapka, Petr Baroch and Michal Muller.
There will be three foreign and three Czech coaches on the Czech bench. Maybe the most famous name is Trot Nixon which is well known as member of the Boston Red Sox team in 2004. That year the Red Sox finally won their first World Series title since 1918.
