Orioles name Bobby Dickerson third base coach


            The Orioles today announced that BOBBY DICKERSON has been named third base coach.

            Dickerson, 47, spent the last three seasons as the Orioles' Minor League Infield Coordinator and has been a minor league coach or manager for the last 20 years in the Orioles, Diamondbacks and Cubs organizations.

            In his 10 seasons as a minor league manager, where he also coached third base, Dickerson compiled a 568-508 (.528) record and led the Orioles' rookie-level Bluefield affiliate to Appalachian League championships in 1996 and 1997.

            "Bobby has been in this organization for eight years as a coach and three as a player and he is regarded as one of the best infield instructors in the game," said Manager Buck Showalter, who managed Dickerson for two seasons (1987-88) in the Yankees organization. "Bobby's been with our major league club the last two Septembers and during spring training so he is familiar with our personnel, he has experience in Latin America and has been around a lot of winning teams. It is also great to be able to promote from within the organization."

            Dickerson played in the minor leagues for seven years in the Orioles and Yankees organizations after being selected in the 23rd round of the 1987 amateur draft out of Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA.

            He resides in Laurel, MS with his wife, Christine, and their children, Ashley and Dustin.
