Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Andre David of the Minnesota Twins hit a home run off Jack Morris in his first big league at bat, but never hit another one in the majors.

After retiring in 1989, he has been a minor league coach and manager in the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals organizations. David has been with the Royals' organization since 1998, serving as Royals hitting coach for parts of the 2005 and 2006 seasons. He was the Royals' Minor League Hitting Coordinator in 2009 and a coach for the AZL Royals in 2011. In 2013, he was named the Royals' assistant hitting coach. That did not last long, however, as the team failed to hit and on May 30th, management decided to make a change, re-assigning hitting coach Jack Maloof and him to the minor leagues, while team legend George Brett took over as hitting coach, and Pedro Grifol was promoted from the minor league staff to serve as his assistant. David was then a coach for the AZL Royals. David was a coach for the Idaho Falls Chukars in 2015-2016 and Burlington Royals in 2017.
