 Biographical Information
Brandon Hyde was signed by the Chicago White Sox in 1997. He spent several years as a player in their organization before becoming a minor league coach. His best year as a player was 1998 when as a DH-C for the Bristol Sox, he hit .372/~.487/.628 in 27 games. It was the only time he hit .300 as a pro. He made it as far as AA, where he hit just .130/.185/.304 in 9 games for the Charlotte Knights. Over the course of his minor league career, he played in 200 games and hit .252 with 15 home runs.
Hyde was the hitting coach of the Greensboro Grasshoppers in 2003 and 2004, and was manager of the team starting in 2005. In 2007 he managed the Carolina Mudcats, and in 2008 became the manager of the Jupiter Hammerheads. In 2010, he was a minor league instructor in the Florida Marlins organization when manager Fredi Gonzalez and two of his coaches were fired on June 23. Hyde then found himself promoted to bench coach of the Marlins, working with new manager Edwin Rodriguez. Hyde managed the Marlins for one game on June 19, 2011 after Rodriguez resigned unexpectedly before the contest with the Tampa Bay Rays. The Marlins had gone 1-17 over their last 18 games at that point, and lost the only game which Hyde managed, 2-1 to the Rays. The team then brought back 80-year-old Jack McKeon to finish the season at the helm.
Hyde moved to the Chicago Cubs' organization in 2012, being appointed Minor League field coordinator.
