Biography

American Major League Baseball catcher and manager. He currently serves as the bench coach of the Milwaukee Brewers. During an 8-year playing career, he played from 1979 to 1987 for three different teams. During a 7-year managing career, he managed from 2001 to 2007 for the Texas Rangers and the Cincinnati Reds. He went to college at East Carolina University. Narron was drafted out of high school in the sixth round by the New York Yankees in the 1974 Major League Baseball Draft and played alongside brother Johnny in Johnson City, Tennessee, during his first professional season. Narron played for the Yankees as the backup catcher to Thurman Munson, who died in a plane crash in August, 1979. Narron was then traded to the Seattle Mariners, and also played for the California Angels before retiring as a player in 1989. He was the Yankees’ starting catcher the day after Munson’s death, and remained in the dugout during the pregame ceremonies, leaving the catcher’s position empty, out of respect for Munson.
