Grenada Baseball's varsity baseball team has a new coach, but getting there wasn't pretty — it followed a bitter back-and-forth between a board member who protested the hire and the new coach's wife.

Steve Bradley, who was Catasauqua's assistant varsity coach last season, replaces Thomas, who had held the position all but one year since 1999, and was the assistant coach from 1992-98.

Though Bradley's name was on the list of extracurricular positions the board was to approve at its Monday night meeting, board member Robert Levine objected to the behind-the-scenes activity that put his name there.
