SARASOTA – The Cincinnati Reds are interviewing for their vacant manager position and Sarasota’s Pat Kelly was interviewed by the Reds for the job.
Kelly spent most of this past season as the interim bench coach for the Reds’ interim manager, Jim Riggleman. Riggleman has also been interviewed.
Kelly has managed on every level of the Reds organization and had two interim stints with the major league club over the past decade.
In August, Kelly got to see son Casey from the opposing dugout, as Casey pitched for the SF Giants against the Reds. Their mid-game salute to each other(pictured here) went viral. Seeing his son pitch was a nice birthday present for dad, and since Thursday(Oct. 4) is Casey’s birthday maybe a nice present would be his dad getting the Reds’ gig.
