Former Hitting Coach Seattle Mariners
Cockrell was named hitting coach for the Colorado Rockies November 7, 2006 - his second stint, having previously served as hitting instructor the last five months of the 2002 season. Under Cockrell's guidance in 2007, the Rockies slugged their way to a National League Championship leading the circuit in batting, on base percentage, and total hits. Prior to his promotion to the major league team, Alan served as hitting instructor for Triple A Colorado Springs from 2003-2006, and as the Rockies roving minor league hitting instruction for the 2001 and 2002 seasons.
On December 7, 2008, Cockrell was named hitting coach for the Seattle Mariners.
We're extremely excited to have a Instructor of Allans calibur on our staff.
