- New A’s pitching coach Scott Emerson easing his way in
By Susan Slusser - Monday Jun 26, 2017
HOUSTON — Taking over a coaching position in the middle of the season can be a tricky proposition, especially following a longtime coach who had great relationships with players.Scott Emerson, the A’s new pitching coach, is well aware of the potential pitfalls.Emerson, 45, is well known to Oakland’s pitchers, especially the relievers, having served as the bullpen coach the past 2½ seasons.The communication between me, Garvin (Alston, the new bullpen coach) and the pitchers is what’s paramount.Emerson is from the Phoenix area, a 6-foot-5 all-state baseball and basketball player at Shadow Mountain High School who was drafted by the Orioles in 1991.The left-hander never advanced past the Double-A level, though, and he often downplays his career when talking to A’s pitchers.White Sox assistant hitting coach Greg Sparks, who was a longtime A’s minor-league coach, also attended Shadow Mountain High School and has known Emerson since he was 12.“He’s a baseball rat, very passionate about what he does, one of the most prepared coaches I’ve ever been around,” Sparks said.Emerson loves coaching so much, he volunteers with a program that helps teach the sport to kids in the Czech Republic and, more recently, in Spain.“Just to see smiles on people’s faces when you keep coming back and they know you care about them,” said Emerson, who still follows some of the kids he’s coached on YouTube clips.Around the A’s clubhouse, the tall redhead is known for his wide smile and corny jokes.“He’s just a big old goofy-headed guy with dad jokes and weird awkward stuff that sometimes you don’t know whether to laugh or say, ‘What are you talking about?’” bullpen catcher Phil Pohl said.
