Dante Bichette won’t be back as Rockies hitting coach

Troy Renck of the Denver Post shares the news:

Dante Bichette will resign after one season as the Rockies hitting instructor, citing family reasons, according to major-league sources.

Bichette played for the Rockies for seven years (1993-1999) and was excited to take the job when he was hired in mid-November, but Renck says the 49-year-old father of two “struggled with being away from his family” and “returning to a major-league schedule was a jarring change.”

Colorado’s hot start and disappointing finish probably didn’t help the enthusiasm level.

The Rockies will carry a 71-86 record into Tuesday night’s game against the Red Sox.

    Working for the Monforts could suck the joy out of anything.
