The Giants announced the retirement of farm director Jack Hiatt, promoting minor league field coordinator Fred Stanley to the post. Hiatt, 65, has spent 46 years in the game, the last 16 as San Francisco’s farm director, though vice president of player personnel Dick Tidrow has final say over scouting and player development in the current Giants regime.
"Jack has been a fixture here with the Giants and has been a major contributor to our success," general manager Brian Sabean said. "He has given so much to the game over his 46 years in professional baseball. We will continue to see the fruits of his labor over the next few seasons with the Giants as his young players move to the big leagues."
Hiatt played for the Giants from 1965-69, and played for four big league franchises overall, totaling 483 games with a .251 average. He has worked for the Giants organization for 25 years overall.
Stanley, 60, has 41 years of professional baseball experience, including 14 as a big league player. He just finished his eighth year with the organization and will be responsible for assigning and evaluating Giants farmhands.
