BOSTON -- Dale Sveum, the Red Sox' third base coach for the last two seasons, was today named third base coach for the Milwaukee Brewers.
"We're sorry to see Dale go," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. "We understand and respect his decision to move on for family reasons, but his professionalism and work ethic will be missed."
"We are grateful for the contributions Dale made to the success of the Red Sox--on the field and in our clubhouse--over the last two seasons," said Senior Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein. "We wish him the best with the Brewers."
"Dale's leadership, baseball experience and work ethic commanded tremendous respect from our players, coaching staff and front office for the last two years," said President/CEO Larry Lucchino. "He will be missed by the Red Sox, but we wish him and his family success and happiness in Milwaukee."
