Joe Maddon Biography
Cubs manager, Joe Maddon was born February 8, 1954, in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. He is the current manager of the Chicago Cubs in Major League Baseball, having previously been the manager of the Tampa Bay Rays. He previously served as interim manager of the Anaheim Angels in both 1996 and 1999, and was a long-time bench coach for the team.
Maddon attended Lafayette College, where he played baseball and football and graduated in 1976. He is a former minor league catcher who had served in the Angels organization for 31 years, though he never made it to the Major Leagues as a player.
He was considered a leading candidate for the Boston Red Sox Manager job in 2004, which went to Terry Francona. His signature thick-rimmed glasses have led to giveaways featuring mock pairs and tributes from Angels players wearing the glasses when playing against the Rays. Sportswriter Peter King once said that Maddon has an uncanny resemblance to 1930's-1960's movie star Spencer Tracy.
In 2008, Maddon led the Tampa Bay Rays to their first playoff win and first World Series appearance, in which Tampa Bay held home-field advantage against the Philadelphia Phillies. It completed a full circle turnaround for the Rays, who were the worst team in baseball in 2007.
