Ausmus, 54, was most recently a coach for Team Israel at the World Baseball Classic. The Connecticut native is also a former MLB catcher who played 18 seasons for four teams, including ten with the Astros. Ausmus won three Gold Gloves in Houston and was an All-Star with the Tigers in 1999. He even came up with the Yankees, who drafted him in 1987 before the Rockies took him in the 1992 Expansion Draft.
