Fox's old buddies chime in.
Andy Fox, Mike Redmond, Brian Banks, Jeff Conine, and Mike Lowell called themselves the ''Breakfast Club.'' On Saturday, when the Marlins announced Fox as the team's new first base/infield coach, the former utility infielder's phone lit up.
''The Breakfast Club was the first to call once they found out,'' Fox said Tuesday when he joined the Marlins in his new role. ``I heard from everybody: Mike Lowell, Mike Redmond, Brian Banks. Conine text messaged me. It was nice.
Speaking of his new job, Fox is going to stay with the teachings of the Master.
That learning on the "fly" thing mainly has to do with learning who the players are and how far along they are in their development.
First indications: Andy Fox may work out just fine. Sure, he is no Perry Hill, but who is? Besides Perry Hill, I mean.
