Oberkfell may manage Tigres del Licey

Fernando Ravelo, general manager of Licey, met with Ken Oberkfell who is the current bench coach of the New York Mets.

"Oberkfell was the first candidate we interviewed on this tour here in the U.S.," said Fernando Ravelo, during his visit to Citi Field, home of the Mets.

During the 2009 season and 2010 Oberkfell was managing the Buffalo Bisons, the main branch of the Mets team in the International League, AAA and last November replaced Terry Collins as bench coach.

"We liked his interview, and he also knows the dominican league as a player and was also manager of the year, is a very good candidate for the job" Ravelo said.

Oberkfell, 55, led the Leones del Escogido to get his championship number thirteen in the Dominican Winter League and their third Serie del Caribe in Isla Margarita, Venezuela in 2010.
