Graham returning to manage Connecticut Tigers

Manager Andrew Graham and hitting coach Mike Rabelo will return to lead the Connecticut Tigers in 2013, the club announced Monday.

The Tigers, the Detroit Tigers' short-season Class A affiliate in the New York-Penn League, will have a new pitching coach in Mark Johnson, who spent the last five seasons with the West Michigan Whitecaps, Detroit's Class A Midwest League affiliate.

This will be the third straight season Graham and Rabelo will lead the Tigers, who play their home games at Dodd Stadium in Norwich. Connecticut was 35-40 in 2012.

The Tigers open their 2013 season at home on Monday, June 17, against the Lowell Spinners, a Red Sox affiliate. They will also play host to this year's New York-Penn League All-Star Game on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Tickets for the game, as well as season ticket and mini-plans, are on sale now. The box office at Dodd Stadium is open weekdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. or by calling (860) 887-7962.
