Triple-A Indianapolis the past two years. He guided the Indians to a 71-73 record in 2010 after posting a 70-73

Prior to joining the Pittsburgh organization, Kremblas spent nine seasons as a manager in the Milwaukee farm system, the last four with

manager had accomplished.

Kremblas managed Huntsville (AA) for three seasons (2002-04) and was recognized as the “Best Managerial Prospect” in the Southern

Baseball Americapoll. He led Huntsville to the 2003 Southern League Championship Series and was named the league’s

playoffs in 2001 after assuming the managerial duties with Class-A Mudville on June 14, 2000.

Frank began his managerial career in the Montreal farm system, first with the Gulf Coast League affiliate in 1998 and then with Class-
A Cape Fear, where he led the squad to the South Atlantic League Championship Series in 1999. During his 13 seasons as a minor league
manager, Kremblas has posted a 788-759 (.509) record while also serving as the West Division manager for the 2004 Southern League
All-Star Game and as a coach for the U.S. team in the 2003 All-Star Futures Game in Chicago.

In addition to his regular season managing duties, Frank led the Peoria Saguaros to an 18-16 record during the 2003 Arizona Fall League.
He also managed Caracas to a 42-21 record in the Venezuelan Winter League in 2009; his team lost to Aragua in the Finals (4 games to 3).

A former catcher, second baseman and third baseman, Kremblas played collegiate baseball at Eastern Kentucky University and was an
All-Ohio Valley Conference selection in both 1987 and 1988 before being selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 23rd round of the 1989
June draft. He played eight professional seasons, topping out at the Triple-A level and posting a .235 career average in 671 games.

Frank was born on October 25, 1966 in Columbus, OH. He resides in Nashville, TN, with his wife Claudyne and daughter Kaitlyn (2). He
attended Canal Winchester High School in Ohio, where he was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall-of-Fame in 1997. His younger
brother, Mike, was a catcher in the Blue Jays, Brewers, and Athletics farm systems (Frank managed his brother at Huntsville in 2003). His
late father, Frank Sr., was a three-year letter-winner on the Ohio State football team from 1956-58 and quarterbacked the Buckeyes to a
share of the 1957 national championship.
