Torey Lovullo’s Father a Pioneer in TV and Country Music

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo didn’t grow up in a baseball family, but instead he was very familiar with the set of popular TV program “Hee Haw,” which aired nationally from 1969 to 1993.  Torey’s father, Sam, was the co-creator and producer of the show that featured top acts in the country music business.

Torey is in his first season as the skipper of the D’backs, after having served as the bench coach for the Boston Red Sox under manager John Farrell since 2013.  He filled in as manager of the Red Sox for the final seven weeks of the 2015 season while Farrell was undergoing treatment for cancer,

Torey played in the majors for seven different teams during 1988 to 1999.
