Lester Bedford - Profile

Title: Assistant Coach

AirHogs coach, Lester Bedford, is in his third season with the team. Lester wears many hats during home games -- serving as first base coach, catching coach/bullpen catcher and batting practice pitcher.

 Having grown up the son of a former minor league catcher, Lester has made catching a life-long passion as a player and a coach.  At Texas Wesleyan University, he was part of three conference championship teams. He wouldn't make his professional debut until 2005, at the age of 49, when he caught for the El Paso Diablos to become the Central Baseball League's oldest rookie and player. He still catches in a top DFW Amateur league, where he was an All-Star selection in both the 25/over and 45/over leagues in 2009.

 Lester's full-time work is with his sports management/marketing firm, The Bedford Agency. He has managed/marketed over 500 sporting events, including events in boxing, baseball, hockey, tennis, basketball and soccer. He is best known for his work in professional boxing, where his company has provided services for over 100 World Championship boxing events, including the recent Manny Pacquiao vs Joshua Clottey event at Cowboys Stadium that attracted over 50,000 fans.
