MIKE SHILDT MANAGER

Mike Shildt arrives in Memphis for his first season as the Redbirds manager in 2015. The 46-year-old Shildt is the sixth manager in Redbirds’ 18-year franchise history and took over for Ron “Pop” Warner, who was named a minor league roving fielding instructor with the Cardinals organization. The 2015 campaign marks Shildt’s 12th season in the Cardinals organization and seventh as a minor league skipper. He carries an overall 333-284 career record (.540 winning percentage) over his previous six managerial seasons with three league championships in three postseason appearances. BRYAN EVERSGERD PITCHING COACH

Bryan Eversgerd returns to the Redbirds for his third season as pitching coach in 2015 and begins his 12th overall season in the Cardinals organization. Before arriving in Memphis in 2013, he spent four of the previous five seasons in the same capacity for the Double-A Springfield Cardinals (200809, ‘11-12) that culminated with a Texas League championship and George Kissell Award in 2012. Eversgerd was signed by St. Louis as a non-drafted free agent during a June tryout camp at Busch Stadium in 1989 and enjoyed a 12-year pitching career that included parts of four big league seasons with the Cardinals (1994, ’98), Expos (1995), and Rangers (1997). He pitched three seasons with Memphis from 1998-2000 and ranks 3rd in Redbirds’ career history with 156 relief appearances. He was the Redbirds’ winning pitcher when Albert Pujols hit a walk-off home run in the 2000 PCL Championship. MARK BUDASKA HITTING COACH

Mark Budaska begins his seventh season as the Redbirds hitting coach after six years working in the Boston Red Sox system, including four with Triple-A Pawtucket. Prior to his time with the PawSox, Budaska spent two years with Double-A Portland. In 2001, the Pennsylvania native enjoyed his most success as a coach, winning the Texas League Championship with the Angels’ Double-A affiliate Arkansas Travelers. The former switch-hitting outfielder played for 10 years in the Oakland Athletics organization, including two stints with the big league club in 1978 and 1981.

He appeared in 41 games in a Redbirds uniform during the 2012-13 seasons and hit his first career professional home run in his first Triple-A game on August 24, 2012. The 27-year-old is the founder of “Gloves 4 Troops,” a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that sends baseball gloves and baseballs to U.S. military members around the world during the offseason.

ONE OF THE BEST

Baseball America has ranked AutoZone Park as No. 2 on its list of the nation’s Best Ballparks in the Minors. The national publication surveyed more than 100 minor league general managers, radio announcers, league observers, and others involved in the game about the best ballparks to help create a top 25 ranking.

“As the jewel of downtown Memphis, we’re proud that AutoZone Park continues to be recognized as a premier minor league destination for baseball fans,” said Redbirds General Manager Craig Unger. AutoZone Park recently underwent a $6.5 million offseason renovation that added significant state-of-the-art


T PARKS AROUND features and fan-friendly amenities. Enhancements included LED ribbon boards; a Left Field Video Wall; two new TruGreen “Bluffs” inside the main seating bowl; a destination bar in Left Field; an expanded Home Plate Club; the addition of the 4-Tops Table Seating; the stadium’s first All-Inclusive Redbird Club; and a playing field replacement.

STADIUM

TEAM

AutoZone Park is noted as “the only park in our league that feels like a big league stadium. Combine that with the downtown location, top-notch sightlines and player amenities, and a gorgeous entryway of player statues and a red brick facade, and Memphis remains a ballpark to be envied.”
