February 9, 2004 - When the Shreveport Sports open the 2004 season at Fair Grounds Field on May 6th against San Angelo, a familiar face, Terry Bevington, will be in the Shreveport dugout. He will return for his second year as manager of the Sports.

In their first year as a member of the Central Baseball League, the Sports posted an overall record of 51-44 and Bevington is already looking forward to the 2004 season. “After being in the league for one season, I have a better feel for independent league baseball. We will have several of the same players from last year’s team returning and I think that will give our fans an opportunity to get to know these guys,” said Bevington. “We have added new players by way of some off season trades and will probably pick up a couple of new pitchers. I believe this will be a team that will challenge for a playoff spot this season,” concluded Bevington.

Bevington, a resident of Collierville, Tennessee was the manager for the Chicago White Sox for three years from 1995-97 and posted a record of 221-214, finishing second two years in the American League Central Division and third place one year. Besides being with the White Sox, Bevington was the third base coach for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1999-2001.

Bevington began his professional career in 1974 when he signed out of high school as a catcher with the New York Yankees. He played seven years in the minor leagues, reaching the Triple-A level in 1980 at Vancouver in the Pacific Coast League before becoming a player-coach that same year for Burlington, Iowa in the Midwest League. The following season, he became a manager in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Bevington is also familiar with this area as he was the manager at El Paso in the Texas League in 1984 and 1985.

Does anyone know where I can find that sound byte of Terry talking about how he was arguing with the ump that the ball was foul but he meant to say fair? I heard played occasionally on Murph and Fred.

Why do the Sox always seem to end with total idiots as their mangers? Bevington, Manuel... the list is endless.
