Recommended Posts

The Detroit Tigers today announced the organization has hired Chris Cron to serve as the manager at Double A Erie and Dave Huppert to serve as the manager at Class A Lakeland.

Cron joins the Tigers organization after managing each of the past 16 seasons at the minor league level with the Chicago White Sox (1995-99, 2003-10) and Colorado Rockies (2000-02). He has guided his club to the post-season in seven of his 16 seasons and his Great Falls club captured the Pioneer League championship in 2008. Cron has been tabbed his league's manager of the year twice during his career, earning the honor in the Carolina League in 1998 and the Pioneer League in 2010.

Cron played professionally for 12 seasons before beginning his managing career, seeing action at the minor league level with the Atlanta Braves (1984-86), California Angels (1987-91), Chicago White Sox (1992-93, 1995) and Cleveland Indians (1994). He saw action in six games at the major league level in both 1991 with the Angels and 1992 with the White Sox.
