Billmeyer Named Bullpen Coach

The Phillies have named Mick Billmeyer their bullpen coach.

Billmeyer, 44, has been a member of the Phillies’ coaching staff for the past five years (2004-08) as the catching instructor. Before that he was the club’s minor league catching coordinator (2000-03) and the Angels’ bullpen/workout coordinator (1994-99).

Ramon Henderson, the team’s former bullpen coach, has been re-assigned to a minor league coaching position. Henderson, 45, spent 11 seasons (1998-2008) as the team’s bullpen coach before taking a leave of absence this past year for personal reasons.
