Noel Barnidge at the Savannah Morning News, writes about Tim Teufel and him being named manager of the Savannah Sand Gnats:

Tim Teufel, a member of the 1986 World Series champion New York Mets, on Wednesday was named manager of the Savannah Sand Gnats.

The 48-year-old former Clemson All-American second baseman has spent five of the last six years coaching in the Mets' minor-league system. He has compiled a 113-96 record in three seasons as a minor-league manager.

Teufel, who played 11 years in the majors, including six with the Mets, replaces Bobby Williams, 30, who was 56-83 as the Sand Gnats' manager last season.
