11/1 Iapoce new Minor League hitting coordinator

The Cubs today named Anthony Iapoce special assistant to the GM/player development, and he will oversee the team’s Minor League hitting program.  Iapoce, 39, also will contribute to additional projects within the organization.  He joins the Cubs after spending the last three seasons as the Blue Jays roving hitting coordinator. From 2008-09, he was the hitting coach for the Marlins Single-A Jupiter affiliate. A former outfielder, Iapoce played 11 seasons in the Minor Leagues in the Brewers and Marlins organizations, as well as independent ball, after being selected by Milwaukee in the 33rd round of the 1994 Draft.  He reached the Triple-A level four different times and was a career .273 hitter with a .342 on-base percentage in 845 professional games.
