The Corpus Christi Beach Dawgs announced last week that interim manager Hector Salinas, who also is the general manager of the first year professional baseball team in the Continental Baseball League, has named his son,

Trey to take over the managerial reins of the team, which was effective last Thursday night against McKinney.

The Beach Dawgs, faced the defending league champion Blue Thunder in a three-game set at the Ballfields at Craig Ranch during Trey Salinas' managerial debut.

Hector Salinas had assumed the managerial role on an interim basis recently when Beach Dawgs manager Murray Wilson abruptly resigned.

Salinas decided that wearing two hats and also promoting the team was too time-consuming and he wanted to devote more of his energies to working with the Nueces County/Corpus Christi community on promotional and youth activities.

"I felt that it is important for me to mingle with the crowds at our games and keep a pulse on what the fans want. We want to build on the momentum from our opening game weekend, which we felt was successful and got us off to a great start. And I know the players are very supportive of this decision.

Trey Salinas who played for Moody High School was a standout at the University Of Texas. He played eight seasons of affiliated professional baseball making it to the AAA level with the Baltimore Orioles.
