And so it begins...
From the inside
While #Dbacks mgr Chip Hale was talking to reporters TLR came over, asked him to sign a hat. 1st mgr he hired & wanted it for his office.— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) October 14, 2014
#Dbacks Chip Hale was 2-for-7 with two walks against GM Stewart. Stew shouldn't feel bad. Hale was 6-12 against Clemens, 5-16 against Cone.— Jack Magruder (@JackMagruder) October 14, 2014
Not sure if I have ever had a coach who has as much passion for baseball as Chip Hale… Love the hire by @Dbacks— Eric James Byrnes (@byrnes22) October 13, 2014
Hale made the A's daily Spring Training schedule, and took it extremely seriously. He said he would get up at 4 AM most days. #Dbacks— Donny Baarns (@DonnyBaarns) October 13, 2014

D'backs fans/@AZSnakepit-ers, tell me how to feel about Chip Hale. Other than being reminded of Rescue Rangers— Layton Shumway (@theshums) October 13, 2014
Chip Hale! Great effing hire! I'm a dbacks fan again.— Josh (@UofAJaC) October 13, 2014
we can only dream that Chip Hale will hire Rodney McCray to be his outfield and base running coach for the @Dbacks.— Jeff Summers (@azjazzyj) October 13, 2014
But not everyone was pleased...
Who the hell is Chip Hale? I don't trust this man. He's not Gibby.— Gabi Piña (@g4b_iii) October 13, 2014
