Duluth Huskies manager Tyger Pederson didn't have to look very far to find a new hitting coach.
The Huskies announced Saturday that Pederson's father, Stu, has come on board as their new hitting coach. It will be the only father-son coaching combo in the Northwoods League.
Stu Pederson, a former outfielder, played 12 minor-league seasons and had a short stint in the majors with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1985.
"Anytime you can add a coach who has MLB experience, it's a good thing," Tyger Pederson said in a news release.
Last summer, Stu Pederson served as hitting coach for the La Crosse Loggers.
