The Washington Nationals today named their minor league coordinators, managers, coaches and trainers for the 2007 season. Nationals Assistant General Manager and Vice President, Player Development Bob Boone and Player Development Director Andy Dunn made the joint announcements.

Five of the Nationals' six minor league managers in 2007 are organization holdovers, with former big league second baseman Tommy Herr (Hagerstown) the only newcomer.

Domestically, of the Nationals' 23 minor league coordinators, managers and coaches appointed today, 16 have spent portions of their playing careers in the big leagues, including all six managers.

Washington welcomes two new affiliates to its system in 2007, the Columbus Clippers of the Triple-A International League and the Hagerstown Suns of the Single-A South Atlantic League.
