North Augusta, SC--While the Augusta GreenJackets don't start their season til early April, we know who will run the team. A familiar face returns as Carlos Valderrama is returning. Now, he wasn't in charge last year, but was in the Jackets last year at Lake Olmstead Stadium.
The 41 year old coach has been part of the Giants organization for several years now, from not only being a coach and manager, but also played a bit with San Francisco.
His other season here, Augusta struggled with just a 55 and 80 record, but didn't have a ton of talent on the roster. He'll replace Jolbert Cabrera who served as manager this past season. Augusta just missed the playoffs in the first half, but really tailed off in the 2nd half of last season.
