This is a nice little nugget I wanted to bring to your attention this morning.  We love talking about former Yankees here at BYB and we all remember Shane Spencer's splash with the Yankees. 

Well, the news is the Somerset Patriots have hired Shane to be their hitting / third base coach. According to NJ.com, read HERE, "The Five-Time Atlantic League Champion Somerset Patriots have announced the hiring of Shane Spencer as the team’s new hitting/third base coach....'Shane will be a strong coach for the Somerset Patriots and fit the team’s winning tradition,' said former Yankees manager Joe Torre. 'As a Yankee, Shane was a part of three World Series Champions and contributed in many ways to help our team win. I see him continuing his transition into coaching with much success in Somerset. His Major League time and experience should be an asset that will help the Patriots continue to win games and championships.'"

I freaking love Joe Torre. I also love that Spencer nailed this position with the Patriots.  Good  for him.  Good luck Shane.
