Wally Backman named Manager of Mets Brooklyn Affiliate

November 17, 2009

Let's hope for longer than 5 Days this Time Wally!

Wally Backman a popular second baseman with the Mets back in the 1980’s will be back in uniform. He was announced as the new manager of  the Mets single A affiliate team, the Cyclones in Brooklyn yesterday. Backman who was hired by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2004 but was released only 5 days later due to legal  and financial issues, has been coaching in independent leagues since the controversy.

Backman who was known for his intensity and fearlessness is eager to prove the baseball world that he’s ready to coach again since the mishap in Arizona.

Nice to have him back with the Mets!
