Biographical information[edit]

2B Mitch Seoane was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 1979 amateur draft and the Cleveland Indians in the 1980 amateur draft. He was signed as a free agent out of Miami by the New York Yankees in 1983, and played 6 seasons in the minors for the Yankees and California Angels.

Seoane coached for the Quad City Angels in 1990, then managed them in 1991 and 1992. He then managed the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 1993, when the parent California Angels switched affiliates. He moved up to the Lake Elsinore Storm from 1994 to 1996. Seoane continued climbing up the chain to the Midland Angels in 1997 and the Vancouver Canadians in 1998. He returned to Cedar Rapids in 1999 and 2000, until being replaced in mid year by Tyrone Boykin.

Moving to the New York Yankees, he coached the Staten Island Yankees for the rest of 2000, managed the Greensboro Bats in 2001, the Tampa Yankees in 2002, and the Battle Creek Yankees in 2003. Once again the Midwest League was rough on Seoane, as he was replaced in mid-2004 as manager of Battle Creek by Bill Mosiello. Seoane was a coach for the GCL Yankees in 2005.
