Red Sox hire Montville
- Updated: January 17, 2020
Former Portsmouth High School standout Mike Montville has been hired as a minor league coach with the Gulf Coast League Red Sox, Boston’s Rookie League affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla.
Montville, 27, was New Hampshire’s Gatorade Player of the Year in his junior and senior seasons. Portsmouth had a 59-game winning streak when Montville graduated, a streak that grew to 89 games and is still the national record for consecutive wins by a high school team.
Montville played college baseball at the University of Maryland and spent his final season with Southern New Hampshire. He currently operates Powerhouse Sports, an indoor baseball/training facility in Seabrook.
Montville said he will likely work with the Gulf Coast hitters and that his duties may include strength training.
