SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Mariners have hired former catcher Dan Wilson as the roving minor league catching coordinator for the organization.
The Mariners announced the hiring on Tuesday. Wilson will work with catchers at all levels of the organization beginning with spring training and continuing through the season. He will travel to each of Seattle's minor league affiliates to work with catchers.
The 44-year-old Wilson spent 14 seasons catching with Cincinnati and then spent the majority of his career in Seattle. He caught more games than any player in Mariners history and ended his career with the sixth-highest fielding percentage for a catcher in major league history.
Wilson was an All-Star in 1996 and was inducted into the team hall of fame in 2012.
