I know its sad, I dont follow baseball,just wanted to know if anyone has ever heard of a player named Rich Monteleone of the Yankees?
My daughter works at a club and this guy,Rich,came in,gave her an "opening day ball" signed by him!
She wants to know if its a good thing-like,collectible? /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

He was with the Yanks, I believe from what I can remember between the years of 90-93. I think he retired in 96 with the Angels. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I think he's the bullpen coach for the Yanks now?

I dunno if his ball will be a collectable. Maybe in several years?

I'll tell her-after he gave it to her, he told her she can sell it on ebay for a few hundred,something with being an "opening day ball" or something like that-She went to get a glass case for it-I told her keep it as a momento-Im not too hot on selling a gift,ya know? A gift is a gift /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Nice momento but I don't think it's worth a few hundred. Maybe she can get Jeter to sign it /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

The coach oversees the pitchers i.e. teach them a new pitch, help them out if they're struggling, assesses new talent...etc.

No, the bullpen coach is not the pitching coach. He keeps up with the relief pitchers during a game, and is called upon by the manager sometimes to report on the status of a pitcher who might be sent into the game, since the bullpen is not near the dugout. He might also help with a starting pitcher who is working out in the bullpen for a start in another game or rehabbing from an injury.
The pitching coach is another guy who lives in the dugout with the manager and tries to explain why the pitcher in the game is getting pushed around.

Gotcha! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
He's like the pitching MANAGER , keeping track of the pitchers status,like,whether they're pitching up to par! He doesnt teach them,cause they already know how to pitch,he more less,trains them to do better if their struggling,right?

I remember Rich Monteleone.
He first came up with the Angels.
I even remember the first game he came in as a reliever for the Angels against the Orioles.
He walked the bases loaded. He then strikes out Ripken and then gets a double-play. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
He pitched for the Yanks after that and as Wendy said, he's their bullpen coach now.
Joey~ Does not think bullpen catcher is such a hot job~

Well, you might say the bullpen coach is the manager of the relief pitchers, but probably not the starters. The pitching coach has a better job, and makes more money and gets to sit in the shade. Maybe the bullpen coach could be called his assistant.

Sorry Carol. The Bullpen coach and the Pitching coach are entirely different. The pitching coach hangs out in the dugout with the manager. He's usually the first guy on the phone to the bullpen coach. He's usually also the first guy to walk out for mound conferences. Most managers take pitchers out of the game but I believe Tommy Lasorda used to let his pitching coach take out the pitcher. Name escapes me though, odd.

Kato~~~shoulda read Vapros post. Mine's pretty much the same as his.
