CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds hired Turner Ward from the Dodgers as their hitting coach on Tuesday , their second significant addition under new manager David Bell.Cincinnati also hired Derek Johnson from Milwaukee as its pitching coach. The Dodgers and Brewers played in the NL Championship Series, with Los Angeles advancing to the World Series for the second straight year and losing to Boston.Ward spent the last three seasons as the Dodgers’ hitting coach. They set club records for homers, extra-base hits and slugging percentage each of the last two seasons. The Dodgers led the NL with 235 homers last season.Ward is from Alabama and was attracted to the Reds’ job in part because it would get him closer to home.“The vision of what they’re trying to do, I can see it,” Ward said on a conference call. “I’ve been impressed with their offense.

Family is very important to me and it made it hard being in LA.”The Reds finished eighth in the NL in runs and ninth in homers despite playing in one of its most hitter-friendly ballparks.

The rebuilding Reds have dropped 98, 94, 94 and 95 games in the last four years, their worst such slump since the 1930s.Bell knew Ward from their playing days and spent hours on Sunday talking to him about his hitting philosophy. Ward played 12 seasons in the majors with Cleveland , Toronto, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Arizona and Philadelphia.“When I found out this was a possibility, I immediately got excited about it James Paxton Jersey ,” Bell said. “To Turner’s credit, he was willing to spend basically the entire day with me.”The Reds fired manager Bryan Price after a 3-15 start and decided not to retain interim manager Jim Riggleman. Dick Williams, the president of baseball operations, said the Reds wanted to go outside the organization in its next step of rebuilding.“We went into the offseason committed to putting new leadership in place in the clubhouse, and interested in seeing where that would take us ,” Williams said. “We thought some new voices in the clubhouse and a variety of perspectives coming in from other organizations would be a good thing.” Milwaukee Brewers All-Star reliever Josh Hader apologized to his teammates Friday for old racist and homophobic tweets that were made public during Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game.According to the Associated Press (h/t, Brewers outfielder Brett Phillips called the apology "sincere," and manager Craig Counsell said Hader was "emotional and very remorseful."Hader offered the apology prior to Milwaukee's home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.Hader, who is now 24, posted the offensive tweets in 2011 and 2012.PerRyan Phillipsof The Big Lead Miles Mikolas Jersey , one tweet read "I hate gay people" while another read "white power."Hader also tweeted "KKK" in November 2011.Major League Baseball Vice President for Social Responsibility and Inclusion Billy Bean met with Hader on Friday as well and said the reliever is in a"tremendous amount of pain" regarding his tweets.Hader is in the midst of his second MLB season, and he has been one of the best relievers in baseball with a 1.50 ERA over 31 appearances.
