PITTSBURGH (AP) -Sid Bream, who kept Pittsburgh out of the 1992 World Series by scoring the winning run for Atlanta in Game 7 of the NL playoffs, is rejoining the Pirates as a coach with their Class-A State College farm club.
Bream and pitching coach Wilson Alvarez will be the coaches under Brad Fischer, the only new manager in the Pirates' farm system. Fischer replaces Turner Ward, now the hitting coach at Arizona's Double-A Mobile affiliate.
Bream, who played for the Pirates from 1985-90, lives in the Pittsburgh area and spent last summer helping to coach an under-19 youth team.
This is the first minor league coaching job for the 47-year-old Bream, a first baseman who ended his career with Houston in 1994. He broke into the majors with the Dodgers in 1983.
