Royals name Terry Bradshaw as minor league hitting coordinator

Jamie Squire

The Kansas City Royals promote Double-A hitting instructor Terry Bradshaw to oversee the team's minor league hitting across all levels.

The Kansas City Royals have promoted from within to fill their void for minor league hitting coordinator. Terry Bradshaw, who for the past four seasons has served as hitting coach for the team's Double-A affiliate Northwest Arkansas Naturals, was named to the job on Monday.

Bradshaw saw time in the majors in two seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1995 and 1996. In 65 career at-bats, Bradshaw hit .262 with no homers and five RBIs.

Royals Director of Player Development Scott Sharp said Bradshaw has earned the promotion.

"Terry has been an integral part in the success of our young minor league hitters as they have progressed through our system and reached Kansas City," Sharp said. "He now will have the ability to positively impact our hitters throughout all levels of the organization."

Joining him as his assistant will be an outside hire, Jose Castro from the Seattle Mariners. Castro was the minor league hitting instructor for five years with the Mariners. A 1977 Philadelphia Phillies draftee, Castro played 13 seasons in the minor leagues from 1977-89. The team also announced the hiring of Milt Thompson as outfield, bunting and baserunning coordinator.
