Washington Nationals’ MiLB co-field coordinator Tommy Shields no stranger to Rochester...

WASHINGTON – The Nationals have a new Triple-A home for 2021 in Rochester.

But the city in upstate New York is old hat for Fairfax native Tommy Shields, 56, the co-field coordinator in player development with Washington.

The former Major League infielder spent all of 1991 season and most of 1992 with Rochester when the Red Wings were the top farm club of the Baltimore Orioles.

“I have nothing but good things to say about Rochester and how much I enjoyed it,” Shields told Federal Baseball this past weekend.
