DENVER (AP) - Walt Weiss is an unconventional pick for an unorthodox park.
After coming off the worst season in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies are willing to try just about anything.
The newly hired Weiss was coaching his son's high school team to the state semifinals just six months ago.
Now, he's in charge of taking over for Jim Tracy and turning around a young squad that finished 64-98. To add to that pressure, Weiss has only a one-year deal to transform the team, not to mention a Rockies executive looking over his shoulder from an office right next to his in the clubhouse.
Weiss knows exactly what he's getting into and hoping to reward the Rockies' leap of faith in him.
