Former MLB player and the ex-manager of the Lotte Giants, Jerry Royster, is set to take the helm of the Quintana Roo Tigres of the Mexican League according to a report on milb.com.
Royster becomes the first foreign coach in the club’s 60 year history and is looking forward to the new challenge.
“I feel very happy and grateful to Mr. Carlos Peralta Quintero, owner of the Tigers team, to take into account to accept this challenge, since I had several projects done both with family and work in Los Angeles, but what I like to be in baseball diamonds, and come with many illusions.”
The club released former manager Robertor Vizcarra to make the move and was very greatful to obtain the highly experience manager.
“We are pleased to introduce and welcome to the club, our new manager for the season of the 60th anniversary of our club,” the team announced at the press conference last Thursday.
Royster also joins former Lotte player Karim Garcia once again, who is currently an outfielder with the Tigres.
