Brooklyn Cyclones Interim Pitching Coach Dave LaRoche told Brooklyn Baseball Banter last night that he is most likely going back to retirement. The 66-year old joined the Cyclones on July 22nd and ended up finishing the season in Brooklyn. Tom Signore had to miss the remainder of the season due to symptoms from a concussion suffered in Las Vegas. LaRoche spent time with the Mets during Spring Training as pitcher instructor.
At one point I asked him “Coach, the last few days, must wins, playoff race etc., aren’t you gonna miss that?” To which he said “I will.”
