Pittsburgh Pirates bench coach Jeff Banister joins the RumBunter Podcast

Pittsburgh Pirates: The Bench & the Farm / The Rumbunter Podcast

You know the roles on the team: Fielders, Pitchers, Coaches…

But do you know what the role of the Bench Coach entails?

Pirates’ Bench Coach Jeff Banister took some time to chat with the Rumbunter Podcast crew about the role of a Bench Coach, his having beaten the Big C as a teenager, his connection to Moonlight Graham, and what to expect in 2012 with the Pirates.

Secondly, we talked with left-hander Joshua Poytress – who pitched at State College last season – about the transition from college to the pros, the Pirates’ “fastball-first” philosophy, and help champion his #SaveTheStache campaign
