Jayce Tingler, who is 5-foot-8, left the University of Missouri as the school record holder in hits, runs and walks.Andy Green, who is 5-foot-9, left the University of Kentucky as the school record holder in hits and runs.So don't be saying they're the same.

Tingler will be introduced at a press conference on Thursday at Petco Park at 11am, which will be aired right here on 97.3 The Fan. Jayce Tingler will wear number 32 as the new manager of the San Diego Padres.

The #Padres officially announce the hiring of manager Jayce Tingler, meaning that no club this winter has filled any of their managerial or front-office positions with a single minority. The #RedSox did not even interview a minority candidate for their chief baseball officer job.
