So having those guys here again is going to be a lot of fun for us. So it's great having Freddie back as the manager and Dave Burba as the pitching coach and Anthony Sanders as the hitting coach and Andy Stover as our trainer. I mean we have great relationships with every one of those guys so it will be great," Ebert said.
