Brain will be replacing Andy Haines. Most Marlin fans will remember Andy Haines from his 2012 campaign with the Hammerheads leading them to the 2012 Florida State League Championship Series but lost to the Lakeland Flying Tigers. Brain is a former catcher who has played for the Montreal Expos, Washington Nationals, New York Mets, and Philadelphia Phillies before retiring right before the 2013 season. This will be Brian Schneider’s first coaching job. He takes over a team that finished the season 68-69; finishing 3rd in the first half of the season and last in the second half. This new young coach is maybe the spark the Hammerheads need to claim that Florida State League Trophy, only time will tell. No news on what is going to happen to Andy Haines, but as soon as we here at MarlinManiac find out we will be sure to let you fans know. Until next time as always… Let’s Go Marlins and Hammerheads!
