Shelley Duncan Benefits From His Father’s Coaching Experience

Shelley Duncan is the new manager of the Visalia Rawhides, the Class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, for the 2017 season.  He previously played during seven major-league seasons with the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Tampa Bay Rays from 2007 to 2013. He had been the second-round draft pick of the Yankees in the 2001 MLB Draft.

Shelley is the son of Dave Duncan, the long-time major-league player and coach.  Dave’s pro coaching career lasted over 30 years, and when he was with the Oakland A’s,  Shelley spent a lot of time with his father learning the game.

Shelley’s brother, Chris, played five major-league seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.
