Glenn Wilson and Michael Jackson, was shipped to the Mariners in the deal that brought Phil Bradley to Philadelphia.
He'd spend the next seven seasons climbing through the Mariners system, but he never made it to the Majors.
He became a player-coach in the late '90s and he managed within the Mariners organization until leaving to manage the Braves Triple-A team in 2007. Yesterday, Brundage was named the new manager of the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs and he finally returns to the Phillies organization after a 24 year absence. He brings with him 13 seasons of experience as a minor league manager, during which time he won three league championships.
The IronPigs manager for the past two seasons, Ryne Sandberg, joins the Major League ranks this season as the Phillies new third base coach. It would be cool if Brundage joined Sandberg next season at the Major League level, finally ending his 27-year minor league odyssey.
