Midland Native Becomes New NY Mets Manager 11-23-2010

A Mid-Michigan native and former Midland High School grad has been selected to lead the New York Mets.
Terry Collins was introduced as manager of the Mets, the latest hire for an organization undergoing an overhaul after four years without a playoff berth.
The team said Tuesday that Collins signed a two-year contract with a club option for 2013.
Collins was the Mets' minor league field coordinator last season. New general manager Sandy Alderson chose him over Wally Backman, Chip Hale and Bob Melvin.
Collins replaces Jerry Manuel, who was fired after a second straight losing season.
This is the first big league managerial job for the 61-year-old Collins since he resigned from the Angels amid a player revolt in 1999.
He inherits a club that went 79-83 last season and was hamstrung by bloated contracts and injuries to key players.
