Brewers’ Groch may attend Jeter festivities
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman called Doug Melvin this week to ask permission to invite Brewers special assistant Dick Groch to join festivities planned for Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit. Groch was the Yankees scout who pushed in 1992 for New York to draft Jeter, who as of Saturday afternoon sat nine hits shy of his milestone.
Groch is currently scouting the Red Sox in advance of the Brewers’ visit to Fenway Park next weekend, and whether he attends depends on how quickly Jeter makes it to 3,000.
