Dominicano Francisco "Frankie" Matos es presentado como coach de Salt Lake Bees

The Angels named a new hitting coach for their AAA affiliate the Salt Lake Bees on Tuesday.  And the new coach is a native of the Dominican Republic.

Francisco "Frankie" Matos is the new coach.  He has been with the Angels for six seasons, and has worked his way up from A-ball.

Matos is a former player that had a sixteen year career in professional baseball, mostly in the minor leagues.  He had a brief stint with the A's in 1994, and also played in the Mexican Baseball League and for several independent league teams before retiring in 2004.  For a lifetime baseball man it is good to see him doing well as a coach.

Like a number of successful Dominican players, Matos has chosen to make his full time residence in the States, rather than return and live in his native Dominican.  He lives in Huntsville, Alabama in the off-season.

Matos is from Sanot Domingo, Republica Dominicana.
