John Schneider will be the Vancouver Canadians manager for the 2014 season. He was a Toronto Blue Jays minor-league catcher who retired at age 27 after suffering three concussions from foul balls in the 2007 baseball season. Schneider previously managed the C's for the first part of the 2011 campaign before taking a personal leave.
He succeeds Clayton McCullough who was in the dugout for the 2012 and 2013 championship seasons. McCullough was named coordinator of instruction for the parent Toronto Blue Jays.
Dave Pano returns for a fourth season as C's hitting coach while Jeff Ware takes over as pitching coach from Jim Czajkowski.
