CINCINNATI (AP) -New Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker kept Dick Pole as his pitching coach Thursday, reuniting him with one of his top assistants from his days with the San Francisco Giants.
The 57-year-old Pole was Baker's pitching coach with the Giants from 1993-97. Pole was hired by the Reds for last season, and has already provided Baker with his insights on the pitching staff.
The Reds also extended the contracts of third base coach Mark Berry, first base coach Billy Hatcher, hitting coach Brook Jacoby and bullpen catcher Mike Stefanski.
Bullpen coach Tom Hume was not offered another contract after 11 seasons on the staff.
Baker hasn't hired a bench coach yet. Pat Kelly, who was added to the staff as bench coach when interim manager Pete Mackanin took over last July, will go back to managing the Reds' farm club in Sarasota.
