#5 Pete Incaviglia - Manager

Incaviglia is set to enter his third season with the Skeeters, leading the team to their second-ever Atlantic League Championship in 2018, as well as an appearance in the Atlantic League Championship Series in '19

Incaviglia was originally drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 10th round of the 1982 MLB Draft out of Monterey High School (Seaside, CA) and again by the Montreal Expos in the 1st round (8th overall) from Oklahoma State University in 1985.

Over the span of three total seasons at Oklahoma State, Incaviglia hit 100 home runs over 213 games and had a career slugging percentage of .915, making him one of the greatest power hitters in college baseball history. After hitting .352 with 29 home runs and 103 RBI in his sophomore season, he would have one of the best seasons in college baseball history as a junior hitting .464 while setting single season NCAA Division I records with 48 home runs and 143 RBI in just 75 games. Pete would also lead Oklahoma State to the College World Series all three seasons.

Incaviglia began his major league career with the Texas Rangers on April 8, 1986. In five seasons and 694 games with the Rangers, he racked up 604 hits with 124 home runs and 388 RBI. Following his five-year stint with the Rangers, Incaviglia would spend time with the Detroit Tigers (1991, 1998), Houston Astros (1992, 1998), Philadelphia Phillies (1993-94, 1996), Baltimore Orioles (1996-97), and New York Yankees (1997). Pete finished his professional baseball career in the Atlantic League, spending time with the Nashua Pride (2000), Newark Bears (2001) and with the Atlantic City Surf (2002).

In addition to almost two decades of professional baseball experience as a player, Incaviglia also brings over a decade of coaching and managerial experience to the Skeeters, initially serving as hitting coach for the Detroit Tigers Class AA affiliate Erie Seawolves (2004-2006). He would then be named inaugural manager of the Grand Prairie AirHogs (American Association) the following year, where he led the club to the Southern Division Playoffs in 2008 and managed through 2010. In 2012 he was appointed manager of the Laredo Lemurs (American Association) where he would manage through 2016, leading the club to the Southern Division Playoffs in 2012 and 2014 and to a league championship in 2015.

Michael Nix - Pitching Coach

Nix enters his seventh season with the Skeeters and first as a player-coach 

Nix returns to the Skeeters after appearing with the team through its first six years of existence (2012-17). He’s the only player in Skeeters history to appear in six separate seasons with the team. He had his contract purchased by the Lamigo Monkeys of the Chinese Professional Baseball League in 2017 and has appeared with Lamigo in each of the last three seasons. Nix led the CPBL with 29 starts in 2019 and was 11-9 with a 3.86 ERA while picking up 141 strikeouts to 51 walks in 177 innings pitched.

The 36-year-old ranks third all-time in Skeeters history in games started (60), wins (27), innings pitched (332), strikeouts (264) and is second all-time with three complete games. Nix led the Skeeters with 88 strikeouts in their inaugural season of 2012. He was selected to the Atlantic League All-Star Game in 2017 and finished that season 9-5 with a 2.24 ERA in 19 games (17 starts) before having his contract purchased by Lamigo. The San Diego Padres purchased Nix’s contract amidst his 2014 campaign with the Skeeters. In his six seasons with the Skeeters, Nix has gone 27-19 with a 3.31 ERA.

The Atlanta Braves took Nix in the 11th round of the 2005 MLB Draft out of Auburn University. Nix spent four seasons within the Braves organization, reaching as high as the Triple-A level. He’s also spent time at the affiliated minor league level with the Colorado Rockies and Chicago White Sox, as well as the Padres. Through his seven seasons at the affiliated level, Nix has gone 29-24 with a 4.33 ERA and 19 saves in 204 games (16 starts).

Along with his time in the Atlantic League, Chinese Professional Baseball League and affiliated minor leagues, Nix has appeared in the Mexican Pacific and Puerto Rican Winter Leagues, as well as the Mexican League.
