Lou Piniella Speaker Profile
Lou Piniella Biography
Lou Piniella was born August 28, 1943 in Tampa, Florida and is the current manager of the Chicago Cubs and a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He has been nicknamed Sweet Lou, both for his swing as a major league hitter and, facetiously, to describe his demeanor as a player and manager. He presently ranks 14th all-time on the list of Managerial Wins.
Known for his often aggressive and sometimes explosive behavior, Piniella has been ejected 61 times in his managerial career. Among active managers, only Joe Torre, Tony LaRussa and all-time leader Bobby Cox have received more ejections. He often sends his pitching coach to remove a pitcher from the game.
After parting ways with the Devil Rays, Piniella spent one season as a color commentator for Fox Sports, joining Thom Brennaman and Steve Lyons in calling postseason baseball games.
