Crestwood, IL The Windy City ThunderBolts professional baseball team has announced the signing of Mike “Kash” Kashirsky to be their field manager for the 2010 campaign. Kash has been with the organization in some coaching capacity for the last 7 seasons, most notably taking over as field manager midway through the 2008 season. Kash lead the ThunderBolts to a 42-15 record the second half of the 2008 season, en route to claiming the ThunderBolts second consecutive Frontier League Championship. Kash will take over for Tommy Thompson, who recently accepted a position with the Chicago White Sox.

In addition to his field manager responsibilities with the ThunderBolts, Mike is entering his second season as the head baseball coach for the Robert Morris University Eagles. After an injury filled 2008 season, the Eagles turned it around when Kash took over and finished the season with a school record 36 wins. The Eagles went from 6-38 to 36-19 in one season. As a collegiate coach at both Moraine Valley Community College and Robert Morris University, Kash has posted an impressive 108-59 record.

When asked about the opportunity to take over as the ThunderBolts field manager, Kashirsky said, “I want to thank the ThunderBolt organization for giving me this great opportunity as well as Robert Morris University for also supporting me to coach both teams. We have a solid base and can't wait till May 20th.” 

Mike is ready for the 2010 season and is excited to continue the winning tradition that the ThunderBolts have been accustomed to the last three seasons. Mike has won two Frontier League Championships as a coach and field manager with the ThunderBolts. He has also been named to 3 Frontier League All-Star Games.

ThunderBolts General Manager, Mike Lucas has worked with Kash for the last 6 seasons and was excited to hear that the organization was hiring Kash as the new field manager. Lucas said “It was amazing to see how the team reacted to Kash the second half of the 2008 season. With Kash at the helm, the ThunderBolts are positioning themselves to put another winning team on the field in 2010.”
