The Colorado Rockies manager will be part of the National League coaching staff for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game.
DENVER — Bud Black gets the call again.
The Colorado Rockies manager received a personal invitation once more from his colleague, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, to be part of his All-Star coaching staff.
Roberts is managing the National League team in the 2021 MLB All-Star Game at Coors Field on Tuesday night.
“He’s a good friend of mine, a mentor. I wouldn’t be here without him,” Roberts said. “He accepted and I’m happy for him.”
Ahead of the Home Run Derby on Monday afternoon, Black said: “I think, for me, I’m proud to be a Rockie and live here in Denver. I hop people see how great of a city this is.”
