Here's the release from the Red Sox: BOSTON, MA—The Boston Red Sox today named Arnie Beyeler as the club’s Major League first base coach.  Executive Vice President/General Manager Ben Cherington and Manager John Farrell made the announcement.   The 2013 campaign will mark Beyeler’s first on a Major League staff and 10th in Boston’s system.  He served as a minor league manager in the Red Sox organization from 2000-02 and 2007-2012, guiding his clubs to a 585-553 (.514) record and four playoff appearances in that time.  In 13 seasons overall as a minor league manager, including three with Rangers organization from 2003-05, he has compiled an 802-756 (.515) record and reached the playoffs six times.   “Arnie has had a successful professional career as a player, coach, and manager,” said Farrell.  “This allows him to bring a wealth of experience to this position.”   The 48-year-old Beyeler spent the last two seasons as the manager of Boston’s Triple-A Pawtucket affiliate and became just the third manager ever to lead the PawSox to the post-season in consecutive years.  His 2012 team won the Governors’ Cup, marking Pawtucket’s first International League Championship in 28 years.  He also saw 23 of his players contribute to the Red Sox at the Major League level this past season.   Beyeler was at the helm of Boston’s Double-A Portland club from 2007-10 and led the Sea Dogs to a pair of Eastern League playoff berths in 2007 and 2008.  He was named the Eastern League’s top managerial prospect by Baseball America in 2010.  Beyeler’s first managerial experience came with the Red Sox’ Short-A Lowell affiliate in 2000-01, followed by a year with Single-A Augusta in 2002.   Between stints with the Red Sox organization, he managed the Rangers’ High-A California League affiliate in Stockton (2003-04) and Bakersfield (2005), leading Stockton to the California League playoffs in 2003 and 2004.  In 2006, he served as hitting coach for San Diego’s Double-A Mobile affiliate.   After his playing days, Beyeler served as the Florida area scout for the Detroit Tigers from 1992-96 before spending three years in the New York Yankees system as a batting and infield coach for Triple-A Columbus (1997) and Double-A Norwich (1998-99).   Beyeler played six seasons of minor league baseball in the Tigers system from 1986-91, reaching as high as Triple-A Toledo in his final professional campaign.  His best season came in 1987 when he hit .285 with 20 stolen bases in 117 games at Single-A Fayetteville, playing alongside Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Lovullo.   A native of Moab, Utah, Beyeler graduated from Wichita State University, where he earned all-conference honors in all three seasons from 1984-86 and was tabbed to the all-region team in 1985.  He also attended Lamar Community College in Colorado.
