First managerial opening
The Joliet Slammers have announced that Mike Breyman will not return for a second season.
Breyman, who played five seasons for the Gateway Grizzlies and was a coach for Gateway and River City, replaced Bart Zeller as Joliet's manager this year. The Slammers had a 38-57 record and finished in sixth place in the West Division, 20 1/2 games behind first-place Schaumburg.
We also have been told that Lake Erie manager Jeff Isom was working on a one-year contract with the Crushers. There is still a chance that Isom could return to Lake Erie in 2014. Last month, Gateway announced that Phil Warren will be back for his eighth season as manager of the Grizzlies, and River City signed Steve Brook for his fifth season with the Rascals.
