KANSAS CITY, MO (July 30, 2013) - The Arizona Fall League announced today that Omaha Storm Chasers' hitting coach Tommy Gregg will serve in the same capacity for the Peoria Javelinas during the 2013 Arizona Fall League.

He spent nine seasons in the Major Leagues with Pittsburgh (1987-88), Atlanta (1988-92, 1997), Cincinnati (1993) and Florida (1995). Gregg was a member of the Braves' back-to-back N.L. Championship teams in 1991 and '92. He led Major League pinch hitters in RBI (17), home runs (4) and batting average (.353) in 1990 and won two minor league batting titles (Double-A in 1987 and Triple-A in 1997).
