Bozzuto Will Return As Manager
The Washington Wild Things announced Friday that Field Manager Robert Bozzuto will return to the team for the 2015 season. Bozzuto, who took over midway through the 2014 season, led the team to a 57-39 record and a postseason appearance. “I am honored and humbled to be part of such a great baseball organization. We look forward to building upon the outstanding foundation we built last year in order to win a Frontier League championship,” Bozzuto said. “As an organization we will honor our tradition, strive to excel in the present, and continue to build for the future. With the support of the coaching staff, the players, and our fan base, I look forward to an outstanding 2015 season.” The Greensburg native has been with the Wild Things since 2006, serving in multiple capacities, including bench coach, and first and third base coach. He helped guide the club during multiple postseason berths, a team record 63 wins in 2005, and a trip to the Frontier League Championship Series in 2007. In addition to his managerial duties with the Wild Things, Bozzuto is the athletic director at North Allegheny High School, overseeing one of the most successful athletic programs in the state.
