Katie Krall was confident she'd have a future in baseball, but not necessarily in the role she now has with the Red Sox

The position is intended to serve as a bridge connecting coaches with their minor league teams to roving coordinators and the front office in a way that improves how coaches and players receive, translate, produce, and apply information. The role would integrate data and really be in the trenches and on the field with the coaching staff,” said Krall.
