Gary DiSarcina Press Conference (Photos)
While it didn’t command as many camera crews as John Farrell’s introductory press conference at Fenway Park, new PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina drew quite a crowd when introduced Friday at McCoy Stadium.

As Gary points out, McCoy Stadium — and all it’s personalities — is familiar territory. He played for the PawSox for a short period in 2002 and recorded his last professional hit at McCoy. He knows PawSox president Mike Tamburro, along with GM/VP Lou Schwechheimer, and makes his home just 50 miles away in Plymouth, Ma.
“DiSar,” as many refer to him, made it clear, however, that he didn’t just take this job to be closer to family. That’s merely a perk. DiSarcina explained that he one day wants to work in a Big League dugout and, if he follows in his predecessors’ paths, that’s likely to happen.
