BARRY MOSS (FIELD COORDINATOR)

PRO SCOUT – LOS ANGELES DODGERS

    

Moss is a Pro Scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers and previously worked within their organization as an Independent League Scout from 2009-11.

After being taken by the Cincinnati Reds in the fifth round of the 1975 first-year player draft, Moss played eight years in professional ball – six with the Reds’ organization and two with the Blue Jays. He was hired by the Cincinnati Reds as a Hitting Instructor for their Florida State League affiliate for the 1985-86 seasons.

In 1987, Moss was a coach with the Salt Lake Trappers (Rookie Pioneer League) on their run to 29 consecutive wins, still a professional baseball record. He would go on to manage the Trappers for three seasons.

Moss managed the Erie Sailors of the New York-Pennsylvania League in 1991 and served in a variety of coaching positions for the Spokane Indians (High-A Padres), Stockton Ports (High-A Brewers) and Orlando Cubs (Double-A Cubs) from 1993-97. In 1998, he was hired as Player Procurement Director for the independent St. Paul Saints, a position he held with the Saints, Brockton Rox and Ft. Worth Cats over the next 13 years.

He served as the Miami Marlins Minor League Hitting Coordinator in 2012.

During the off seasons of 2000-2005, Barry was the Hitting Coach for the U.S.A. Professional Tournament Teams that played for the World Cup and Pan American Games Qualifying Tournaments.

His well-rounded experience at the major league level makes him the perfect candidate to serve as the CWL’s Field Coordinator.

JAMES FRISBIE (CWL PITCHING COORDINATOR)

MANAGER – LINCOLN SALT DOGS (AMERICAN ASSOCIATION)

Frisbie began the 2017 season as the Blue Crabs pitching coach. He took over the helm in early August and led the team to the first-half Freedom Division championship.

Besides the last two months of the 2017 ALPB season, Frisbie’s previous skipper duties were managing the Texas Air Hogs of the American Association in 2016. In 2013, Frisbie was named the team manager for the Rockford Aviators and was the manager of the 2015 Frontier League All-Star game. As a player, the left-handed pitcher was signed by the Alexandria Aces in the Texas-California League in 1998. Frisbie was on staff with the Rio Grande Valley White Wings, the Jackson Senators of Central Baseball League and with the Chillicothe Paints in the Frontier League.

Frisbie enters the 2019 season as Pitching Coach for the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League and his first year as CWL Pitching Coordinator.

BOBBY BROWN (HITTING COORDINATOR)

DIRECTOR OF PLAYER PERSONNEL – GATEWAY GRIZZLIES (AMERICAN ASSOCIATION)

Brown has 20+ years of professional baseball experience as a player, coach, scout and manager. 2019 will be his seventh season with the CWL.

Brown initially played with the Springfield Capitals of the Frontier League in 1996 before hooking on with the Kansas City Royals the following year, following a similar path to majors many CWL players take. He returned to the Frontier League in 1998 and posted career highs in batting average (.363), home runs (9) and RBI (63) with the Canton Crocodiles.

Brown served as manager for Amarillo Thunderheads from 2013-2015, sending five players to the majors during his time with the club, including David Peralta of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

After his time in Amarillo, Brown became the hitting coach for the Lincoln Saltdogs in the American Association in 2015. He was quickly promoted to manager in just his second season with the club in 2016.

Brown’s expertise in the art of hitting is why the CWL brought him on to serve as the league’s Hitting Coordinator in 2017. Bobby will return to a manager role in 2019.

STAN CLIBURN (MANAGER)

MANAGER – SOUTHERN MARYLAND BLUE CRABS (ATLANTIC LEAGUE)

Stan Cliburn returns to the CWL for his 7th season in 2020. Following his career with the California Angels, Cliburn went on to manage 28 years professionally. Stan just finished his 31st season in minor league baseball and 2nd overall season with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. He carries a 1734-1766 record in his 28 year career as a Manager, and managed his 3,500th professional game on the final day of the 2019 season. He is notorious for leading his teams to the promised land, having made it to seven championships while winning four titles. The Mississippi native returned to Southern Maryland after coaching the 2015 Blue Crabs squad to one of two championship series in franchise history, and winning ALPB Coach of the Year honors with the New Britain Bees in 2016.
