BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Biloxi Shuckers were leading the Southern League South Division after Memorial Day posting a 27-18 won-loss record.
Shuckers manager Carlos Subero has the Shuckers clicking on all cylinders. The Shuckers have been getting the job done on the mound, at the plate and in the field.
42-year-old Subero is serving his second season as manager of the Milwaukee Brewers Double-A team, the first season in Biloxi.
Subero previously spend five seasons as manager in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.
As a player Subero spent time with the Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers Minor League systems.
Subero said, "I was born in Venezuela. Signed as a free agent at 18-years-old. Played with the minor league system up into the high A's for eight years and became a coach at 26-years-old with the Texas Rangers. This will be my fifteenth year as a manager and year number seventeen coaching."
Subero realized that his best talents would be off the field, serving as a coach and manager and his ultimate goal is to become a manager in the Major Leagues.
"I told my mom that I wanted to pursue a dream to get into the big leagues. I didn't accomplish that as a player and hopefully I will be doing it as a coach, "stated Subero.
In the meantime, he's been doing an excellent job in building the Biloxi Shuckers into a Double-A contender.
The Shuckers open a five-game series with Southern League North Division leader Chattanooga on Wednesday.
