Front office backs Brewington

Jamie Chancellor Brewington, whom the Pirates on Wednesday hired as a pro scout, faces a hearing April 2 in Maricopa County (Ariz.) Court in Phoenix, for non-payment of child support. The Pirates knew of Brewington’s legal issues before he was hired. “We were aware of it,” general manager Neal Huntington said. “I believe everyone deserves a second chance. It’s very important to us and to Jamie that he meets his obligation, and he is working hard to do so.”

Brewington, 40, of Chandler, Ariz., is a former major league pitcher and has not played pro ball since 2004. He did not return a phone call from the Tribune-Review.

In his 12-year career, Brewington pitched in 39 total games with the San Francisco Giants (1995) and Cleveland Indians (2000). On July 16, 2000, Brewington got his ninth and final career victory by tossing 1 1/3 scoreless innings in relief in the Indians’ 6-4 victory against the Pirates. After retiring from baseball, Brewington worked as an enrollment representative for the University of Phoenix and an account manager for Corporate Flooring Solutions, Inc. He also made baseball training videos.

  1. ANOTHER ex Indian? C’mon, when are they going to hire Bob Feller? Didn’t Neil ever meet anyone from another team?

  2. The Pirates management approves of non-payment of child support? Huntington should be fired for this travesty. Otherwise, women should boycott the games.

  3. Yeah, if anybody knows about second, third and fourth chances, it’s Neal Huntington, right?

  4. I guess winning that game against the Bucs was the big item on his resume. Maybe that experience convincing kids Univ of Phoenix is a real school will help him convince the rest of us the Pirates are a real team.
