John Gibbons Media Session: August 4
Coming back home
Bench coach John Gibbons was asked to update the media on the how his manager and friend Trey Hillman is doing, and when we can expect him back. “He is doing just fine, we are all behind him and look forward to him coming back tomorrow at some point. I will be managing the game tonight against the Mariners,” Gibbons said. The KC skipper had to unexpectedly fly home to Texas on Sunday after the game, for what has only been described as “an emergency back home”. We hope all is well and send our best wishes to Trey and the entire Hillman family.
