Santa Cruz’s Glenallen Hill, a 49-year-old former MLB outfielder, has been named the Albuquerque Isotopes field manager for the 2015 season by the Colorado Rockies.
It’ll be his third season as a manager at the Triple-A level. He managed the Colorado Spring Sky Sox in 2013 and 2014 after six seasons as the first-base coach for Colorado.
Hill, who has served as a coach in the Rockies organization since 2003, began his coaching career in 2004 as the hitting coach for the Rockies High-A affiliate. He also served as the interim manager for the Modesto Nuts for the last three months of the 2006 season after former skipper Chad Kreuter took over as USC’s coach.
Hill, a 1983 Santa Cruz High alum, batted .271 with 186 homers and 586 RBI in his 13-year MLB career.
Joining Hill in Albuquerque will be hitting coach Dave Hajek and pitching coach Darryl Scott.
