Father-Son Dynamic Adds Special Bond to Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks
The RedHawks are operating under first year manager Jim Bennett while his son plays infield
FARGO, N.D. — The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks have their final exhibition game on Wednesday.
Half of the roster includes guys who played for the RedHawks last year.
One notable addition is second baseman T.J. Bennett, whose dad is the new manager, Jim Bennett.
T.J. says his dad hasn’t been the head coach of any of his teams since travel ball days. But, he’s not worried about needing to make an adjustment.
“I think his coaching style and his style as a person, as a parent, father, friend, whatever it is, are pretty similar,” T.J. said. “As a coach, he cares about his players. As a dad, he cares about his kids. As a husband, he cares about his wife. He cares about his family deeply, and he makes that very clear in the way he goes about things.”
The RedHawks open the regular season Friday against Kansas City
