The Erie SeaWolves have confirmed that it may be in the works that Lance “The Big Wheel” Parrish will become the new manager this season. No official announcement has been made by the Detroit Tigers or SeaWolves. Parrish hasn’t managed since 2007 but was eager to get back into baseball according to the Detroit News. Parrish, 57, was a key member of the Detroit Tigers’ 1984 World Series championship team. Parrish will replace Chris Cron, who left to become the minor league hitting coordinator with the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this month.
