Baltimore Orioles to Offer Manager Position to Undefeated 10U Travel Ball Coach
BALTIMORE, MD—Desperate to start winning ASAP and change the culture of the franchise, the Orioles are looking to offer the MLB manager position to Byron Wilson, 10U travel baseball coach who has only lost three games since he began his illustrious coaching career, and is currently undefeated in 2019. The early season slump has launched the Orioles’ front office into panic mode, causing them to seriously consider making this unprecedented decision.
“We need to win, and we need to win now,” explained Peter Angelos, majority owner of the big league club. “[Brandon] Hyde isn't getting it done. We need someone who cares about winning more than anything else, and we see that in coach Wilson.”
Coach Wilson started his professional coaching career three years ago when his then eight-year-old son wanted to start playing travel ball.
“I knew it was my chance to make a name for myself,” recalled Wilson, “So of course I seized the opportunity to spend more quality time with my boy.”
Over the past three seasons, Wilson’s teams have amassed a 130-3 record with more than 30 tournament wins.
“The key is development—I don’t do it,” shared Wilson. “If there’s a kid who needs a little work, I cut him and get someone who belongs to take his place. We have also have a no-slump policy on all of my clubs.”
HIs record and win-at-all-costs attitude have turned the heads of several MLB clubs.
Wilson’s agent is currently negotiating terms with the Orioles. If they cannot agree on a contract, Wilson says there are three other MLB teams interested.
