SHARE Career and a shot for manager Joe Maddon

Thursday’s win over the Mets was Cub manager Joe Maddon’s 800th career victory, almost 19 years after getting his first as an interim manager when the Angels beat the eventual-champion Yankees at Yankee Stadium late in 1996.

Maddon remembered his winning pitcher was Jason Dickson. He remembered a homer by rookie Derek Jeter. Mostly he remember this:

“After the game, Peter Bavasi – [general manager] Billy’s brother – showed up in that little manager’s cubicle on the visitors side of Yankee Stadium with a shot of Jack. Which really helped the postgame interview.”
