The Milwaukee Brewers named Johnny Narron the teams hitting coach on Monday, replacing Dale Sveum, who was named the new manager of the Chicago Cubs.
Narron is the older brother of Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron. He joins the Brewers after spending four seasons on the Major League coaching staff of the Texas Rangers.
Narron is also returning for a second stint in the Brewers organization, his first at the Major League level. He served as the hitting coach at Rookie Helena in 2003 and 2006, and managed there in 2004. He also spent the 2005 season as the hitting coach at Class-A Brevard County and Class-A West Virginia.
