Hargrove Won't be Back Next Season
08/27/2011
 

The Bee Jays don't know who their manager will be next year.  But BJ general manager Bob Carlile knows the next manager won't be Mike Hargrove.  The Perryton native and former Bee Jay player and manager has a public relations job with the Cleveland Indians, the team Hargrove led to a pair of penants in 1995 and 1997.  He is currently enjoying that job and wants to continue working for the Tribe.  The Hargrove family lives in Cleveland as well.  Hargrove led a path of baseball goodwill throughout Liberal and the Jayhawk League in 2008 and 2009 when he managed the team to a fourth place and third place finish at the NBC World Series.  Hargrove managed 16 years in the big leagues before wearing the powder blue and red. 

Mike Silva managed the Bee Jays this past year.  He missed the NBC World Series and several weeks during the season while taking a new head coaching job at Galveston.  Clarendon's new head coach Chris Joblin managed the Bee Jays when Silva was gone.  The Bee Jays were 33-18 this season and took seventh at the NBC World Series in a season hampered by injuries.

Don't close the doors on Hargrove ever coming back.  Carlile says he believes there is a good chance Hargrove will return home to manage the BJ's again some day.  But it looks like that day won't come durign the 2012 season.
