HOUSTON - Former Houston Baseball letterwinner and current Minor League manager Chris Tremie has been named to the Triple-A All-Star Game coaching staff, which is slated for Wednesday, July 16 in Durham, N.C.
Durham's Charlie Montoyo will manage the International League All-Star Team with Columbus Clippers manager and Cougar Tremie assisting. Tremie is at the helm in Columbus for the second straight season after having led his Double-A Akron team to the 2012 Eastern League Championship.
A four-year letterwinner for the Cougars from 1989-92, Tremie was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 39th Round of the 1992 MLB Draft. Tremie helped lead Houston to two 40-win seasons in his four years.
He began his MLB career in 1995 with the Chicago White Sox. After his MLB debut, Tremie had stints with eight minor league teams (Nashville, Reading, Oklahoma, Atlantic City, Newark, Calgary, Round Rock, and New Orleans) and three major league teams (Texas Rangers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Houston Astros). Tremie retired in 2005 as a member of the Round Rock Express.
Tremie managed the Gulf Coast Indians (rookie-level affiliate of the Cleveland Indians) to a 21-29 record in 2006. He served as the manager of the Single-A Kinston Indians in 2009, of the Arizona League Indians in 2010, and of the Akron Aeros in 2011. He is currently the Manager of the Columbus Clippers (2013,2014).
The 27th annual Triple-A All-Star Game will take place at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, home of the IL's Durham Bulls, on Wednesday, July 16 at 7:07 p.m. ET on MLB Network as well as the Triple-A All-Star Game Radio Network.
