THIS IS EPISODE 272 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Dave Jauss is the bench coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates and in his 33rd season of professional baseball. He joined manager Clint Hurdle’s staff in October 2012, after working with the New York Mets in 2011 as their coordinator of staff development. Jauss also served the Mets as their bench coach in 2010 after working in the same capacity under manager Dave Trembley in Baltimore (2008-09) and under manager Grady Little with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2006-07).
Prior to joining the Dodgers, Jauss spent 10 seasons working as a coach, scout and administrator in the Boston organization (1996-2005). He spent the 1995 campaign as Baltimore’s coordinator of instruction before being hired by the Red Sox, where he worked as the minor league field coordinator for two years (2000-2001). His last three seasons with Boston (2003-05) were spent in the role of a major league advance scout. Jauss’ start in professional baseball came in 1988, when he managed Montreal’s Gulf Coast League team.
Dave has been married to his wife, Billie, for 30 years, and together they have three children. Billie is an author and recently released her first book, “Making Room: Doing Less So God Can Do More.”
On this episode of the podcast, Dave and Billie share their baseball journey, what the life of a traveling baseball wife is like, how God restored their marriage after a separation, the impact Clint Hurdle has made on their lives, and why it is so important to make an impact on others through baseball.
