BY GORDON WITTENMYER Staff Reporter October 9, 2014
The Cubs didn’t have to go far to find their next hitting coach. They hired Mount Carmel High School grad John Mallee from the Astros’ staff this week to replace Bill Mueller.
They also hired former Cubs outfielder Doug Dascenzo as first-base and outfield coach, shifting first-base coach Eric Hinske to assistant hitting coach, to complete their 2015 coaching staff.
