5/2 Wasn't that Greg Maddux?
If the extra coach on the Daytona Cubs looked familiar, it’s because it was Greg Maddux, who just completed five days with the Cubs’ Class A team. It’s part of the four-time Cy Young winner’s new job as an assistant to Cubs GM Jim Hendry. Maddux was in uniform in the dugout to talk to the players, give advice, maybe throw a little batting practice. The plan is for the former pitcher to spend time with each of the Cubs’ Minor League affiliates in the first half of the season. He’ll also join the big league team as well.
