May is no stranger to new Springfield Manager "Pop" Warner, having spent the last two seasons as Hitting Coach for the Palm Beach Cardinals. May's only two years within the Cardinals' system have both been spent on the Palm Beach staff with Warner at the helm.
Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the first round of the 1986 draft, May enjoyed a ten-year career with six Major League teams: the Cubs, Brewers, Astros, Phillies, Expos and Orioles. A life-time .271 hitter in 797 career games, his best season came with the Cubs in 1993, when he played in 128 games, batting .295 with ten homers and 77 RBIs. May finished his career by playing three years in Japan for the Chiba Lotte Marines.
May, 38, joins Warner along with returnees, Pitching Coach Blaise Ilsley and Athletic Trainer Brad LaRosa, who both begin their third year in Springfield.
