BOSTON, MA -- The Boston Red Sox today named DeMarlo Hale third base coach. Senior Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein made the announcement.

Hale replaces Dale Sveum, who on Wednesday was named third base coach for the Milwaukee Brewers after serving the Red Sox in the same capacity the last two seasons.

The 44-year-old Hale, who for the last four seasons served as the Texas Rangers' first base coach, began his professional coaching career as a member of Boston's Double-A New Britain staff in 1992 and spent the next seven seasons as a manager in the Red Sox minor league chain. Hale returns to the Red Sox organization after six seasons in the Rangers system -- the first two as manager of their Triple-A Oklahoma squad and the last four at the big league level, where he also served as the club's outfield coach. In 2002, Hale and Red Sox manager Terry Francona (bench coach) were members of Texas' major league coaching staff.

Hale, who in 2006 begins his 20th season in professional baseball, played five seasons as a first baseman and outfielder in the Boston and Oakland chains, advancing as high as Double-A New Britain in 1986 and Oakland's Double-A Huntsville affiliate in 1988.

In seven seasons as a manager in Boston's minor league system, Hale posted a 491-471 record, including a 92-50 mark in 1999 with Double-A Trenton to earn Minor League Manager of the Year honors from Baseball America, The Sporting News and USA Today Baseball Weekly in addition to earning the Eastern League award. From 2000-01, he guided Triple-A Oklahoma to a pair of second-place finishes in the Pacific Coast League's East Division.

A native of Chicago, Hale played four seasons at Southern University before being selected by the Red Sox in the 17th round of the 1983 Draft. He and his wife Carol reside in Orlando, FL.
