The Bakersfield Blaze have announced their field staff for the 2012 season. Ken Griffey Sr is returning as the manager, Rigo Beltran is returning as the pitching coach and Eli Marrero will be the hitting coach after spending last season with the Billings Mustangs in the same role.
That leaves only the Pensacola squad left to name its field staff for the 2012 season.
