Dickerson, who served as the Orioles' minor league infield coordinator for the past three seasons, found out about his promotion in an unusual manner.
"I don't know if Buck (Showalter) would want me to say this, but he talked to my wife about it to make sure my family was OK with it," Dickerson said. "He wanted my family to be there when I was told. It was very special."
According to the article Showalter talked to Dickerson's wife before he told Dickerson he was hired, a classey move.
