Former Mariners' GM Coming Back As A Scout

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Former Seattle Mariners general manager Woody
Woodward is rejoining the organization as a scout.

Woodward's addition was one of three moves the Mariners
announced on Thursday. The team also hired Steve Hecht as the
organization's performance coach, focusing on mental training.
Hecht spent the last three years with the Texas Rangers in the same
position.

Seattle also added Joe Nigro as a scout, focusing on Major
League and minor league teams.

Woodward was Seattle's GM from 1989-1999. His scouting duties
will be focused in the Southeast and include spring training, and
both Major League and minor league assignments.
