Shortly after the press conference to introduce the new Padres skipper, Executive Vice President/GM A.J. Preller sat down with 97.3 The Fan’s very own Tony Gwynn Jr. for an exclusive one on one interview.
During their 10 minute interview, Tony and Preller discussed the hiring process leading to Jayce Tingler. Tony asked how deep was the list of candidates the Padres looked at, and what Preller's top off-season priorities are now that Padres have a field manager.
We also got the low down on the construction of the new coaching staff as well. See the entire interview here.
