Brett Jodie retruns to Lincoln for his fourth season managing the Saltdogs.  In 2022 Jodie led the team back to the postseason for the first time since 2017 as the ‘Dogs won nine of their last 10 games to make the top eight.

Before coming to Lincoln the 46-year-old spent 13 season with the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League, including a seven year stint as the Manager from 2013-2019.  Jodie led the Patriots to the 2015 Atlantic League title and made the playoff six out of the seven years as the head man.  In his 11 managerial seasons Jodie has made the playoffs seven times and has had seven winning seasons.

As a player, Jodie made it to “The Show” pitching for both the New York Yankees and the San Diego Padres in 2001, after being selected in the sixth round of the 1998 MLB Draft.  He made eight appearances in the MLB. Jodie was born on March 5, 1977 in Columbia, South Carolina and played his college baseball in his hometown at the University of South Carolina.

This is his first stint in the American Association after a successful run with the Patriots, where he also had to manage with experimental rules the MLB has implemented based on an agreement between them and the Atlantic League. Jodie is the ninth manager in franchise history and took over for James Frisbie in Nov. 2019, but the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Frisbie was hired by the Detroit Tigers to be a part of their mahoe league staff.
