TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The New York Yankees are bringing back Luis Sojo to manage Single-A Tampa.
The Florida State League Club made the announcement on Monday.
Sojo managed the Tampa Yankees for four years before taking off last season. He has also managed Venezuela twice in the World Baseball Classic.
A member of four World Series championship teams with the Yankees, the popular infielder drove in the series-clinching run with a ninth-inning single in Game 5 of the 2000 Series against the New York Mets.
Members of Sojo’s staff include pitching coach Jeff Ware, hitting coach Justin Turner and coach Mario Garza.
