6/28 Quade named to NL All-Star staff
Cubs manager Mike Quade will join the National League coaching staff for the All-Star Game, to be played July 12 in Phoenix. Giants manager Bruce Bochy made the announcement Tuesday prior to a makeup doubleheader between the Cubs and Giants. Quade, 54, replaces Jim Riggleman, who had been named to the NL staff but resigned from the Nationals last week. Quade took over the Cubs last Aug. 23, and guided the team to a 24-13 record. This year, he’s had to deal with injuries to several key players, including starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Randy Wells, who were placed on the disabled list after their first starts.
