Orioles Hire Dickerson As 3B Coach, Sign McLouth

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have selected Bobby Dickerson to be their third base coach.

The 47-year-old Dickerson spent the last three seasons as the team’s minor league infield coordinator. He has been a minor league coach or manager for the last 20 years with the Orioles, Arizona and Chicago Cubs.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter says Dickerson “is regarded as one of the best infield instructors in the game.”

He replaces DeMarlo Hales, who left to be bench coach with Toronto.

In other news, the Orioles on Thursday finalized a $2 million, one-year contract with outfielder Nate McLouth, a deal agreed to Dec. 5. The 31-year-old hit .268 with seven homers and 18 RBIs last season.
