Bridgeport, CT - The Bridgeport Bluefish have announced that Willie Upshaw will not return as field manager for the 2015 season. A nationwide search for a new manager will commence immediately.

“We appreciate all of Willie’s efforts. Willie is a good man and has had some great moments as manager of the Bluefish,” said Bluefish general manager Jamie Toole. “Following the results of the 2014 season, we feel a fresh direction on the field and in the clubhouse is needed.”

Upshaw, a Fairfield County native, had been at the helm for six consecutive years and nine overall. He led the Bluefish to a 572-543 (.513) record during his managerial career in the Park City.

Willie returned home in 2009 as manager of Bridgeport after spending the 2006 and 2007 seasons as first base coach for the San Francisco Giants. Upshaw, the first manager in Bluefish history, spent three years in Bridgeport from 1998-2000. He has been named Atlantic League manager of the year twice (1998 and 2010) and led the Bluefish to their lone championship in 1999, as well as an appearance in the Atlantic League Championship Series in 2010.
