Coaches announced: Meet the Hound trainers

2 former Brewers and a previous league “Best Manager,” boasting winning records from the MLB to Olympic level — Safe to say: The coaching staff for the DockHounds are an all-star team. And we can’t wait to let them Off The Leash.

  • Jim Bennett, Manager, returns to the American Association after being named 2019 Manager of the Year, one of many accolades across a winning 30-year career. 
  • Dave Nilsson, Bench / Hitting Coach, is a former Milwaukee Brewer, 1999 All-Star and Silver Medalist representing the Australian Olympic Baseball Team. 
  • Paul Wagner, Bullpen Coach, pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Cleveland Indians, and is a well-known radio personality for 97.3 The Game.  

They were all wooed by Lake Country’s baseball-lovin’ culture, and they’re ready to pump up players and fans alike. 

Watch out, American Association. These Hounds are gonna be well trained.
