Sweet Music Set to Return
On Friday night, Frank Viola will make his long awaited debut as Pitching Coach for the Las Vegas 51s. Viola underwent open heart surgery in March & has been medically cleared to coach the Mets AAA team effective tomorrow night.
Viola joins a coaching staff that consists of former 2006 Cyclones Manager George Greer as Hitting Coach & 2010 Manager Wally Backman.
Tom Signore, who had served as Interim Pitching Coach for Las Vegas, is now headed to Brooklyn to serve as pitching coach for the Cyclones.
He suffered a concussion a few weeks ago, but is now fine.
