PHOENIX - Chip Hale spent 10 seasons in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, the final three as the major league third base coach. He also played at the University of Arizona and still lives in Tucson.If ever there was a perfect fit for Hales first job as a big league manager, it was with the Diamondbacks, who gave him a two-year contract Monday to replace Kirk Gibson.This is the perfect job for me and my family, and that is important for me to be here, Hale said.Backsliding since winning the 2011 NL West title, the Diamondbacks underwent a major front-office overhaul this season.Arizona hired retired Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa as chief baseball officer in May, asking him to assess the entire organization.He fired general manager Kevin Towers in early September and replaced him with Dave Stewart, who a four-time 20-game winner who pitched for La Russa while with Oakland. The Diamondbacks also hired De Jon Watson from the Los Angeles Dodgers to serve as senior vice-president/baseball operations.Their top priority for the new front-office group was to find a manager who could change the culture within the clubhouse.Gibson led Arizona to a division title his first full season, but the Diamondbacks following with consecutive 81-81 seasons and went a big league-worst 64-98 this year.Arizona hopes Hale is the perfect fit to turn around the franchise. He played multiple positions during a 12-year career that included stops with Minnesota and the Dodgers, hitting .277 in 333 big league games.Hale spent six seasons in Arizonas minor league system as a coach, earning numerous manager of the year awards along the way, and served as third base coach under Bob Melvin with the Diamondbacks from 2007-09.Hale spent 2010-11 with the New Mets as third base coach and reunited with Melvin in Oakland, where he spent the past three seasons as bench coach.It was just the completeness of his background and the way he presented himself, La Russa said. We were looking for a leader and a guy who knew baseball, and there wasnt a box that wasnt checked.Hale emerged from a strong list of candidates.La Russa was open about the process from the start, providing the names of all nine of the initial candidates. Arizona whittled the contenders down to four and chose Hale over former big league manager Jim Tracy, Triple-A Reno manager Phil Nevin and Cleveland Indians third base coach Sandy Alomar, Jr.Weve learned that when you have a real good competition, the guy who survives is better off rather than somebody gift-wrapping the job and nobody pushing him, La Russa said.Hale had interviewed for managerial positions before and was turned down. When the job openings started this season, it seemed almost like an omen to him.Hale learned to play in the big leagues under Tom Kelly with the Twins, who fired Ron Gardenhire.Arizona was the place where Hale learned coaching, and the Diamondbacks needed a new manager after they fired Gibson. He ended up back with the Diamondbacks and couldnt be happier.It was an exciting time to interview. Ive done it a couple times, and really felt good when I walked in that room, like this is where I belong, Hale said. It feels good to be home. Mike Minor Rangers Jersey . “Im not sure well get Melky Cabrera at all,” said Gibbons. The 29-year-old left fielder struggled all season with knee and hamstring problems. Cabrera was first on the disabled list from June 27-July 20 with tendinitis in his left knee. Michael Young Jersey . Atletico Madrid made it three wins from three thanks to a double from in-form striker Diego Costa in a 3-0 victory at Austria Vienna, leaving the Spanish side on the brink of the last 16 already to continue its brilliant start to the season. https://www.cheaprangersbaseball.com/219...ey-rangers.html. Those cheers seemed more special this time because the captains run on Broadway could soon be over. The adoration surely sounded much nicer to Callahan than all the recent trade talk. Tom Grieve Jersey . A rainy day saw the former champion Djokovic handle 14th-seeded Frenchman Jo- Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) under the roof on the famed Centre Court.

Woods said on his website Monday he will no longer work with Foley, the Canadian whom he hired when his game was at its low point following the upheaval with his marriage. The announcement came one day after another Foley pupil, Hunter Mahan, won The Barclays. "Id like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship," Woods said. "Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him." Woods has been coping with back problems for more than a year. He had surgery March 31 to alleviate a pinched nerve, forcing him to miss two majors during his three months of recovery. He missed two cuts, withdrew from another tournament and had his worst 72-hole finish in a major after returning. He is taking three months off in a bid to regain his full strength, and said this would be the right time to dismiss Foley. Woods is not scheduled to play again until his World Challenge in Orlando, Florida, the first week in December. He does not have a coach and said there was no timetable to hire one. "My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together," Foley said in a statement posted on Woods website. Foley, from Burlington, Ont., was the third coach Woods hired as a professional. Woods began working with Butch Harmon as a teenager, and they changed his swing twice. The biggest overhaul was after Woods won the Masters by 12 shots. Many believe the new swing produced Woods most dominant golf, though he also was in his early 20s and had not had serious issues with his knee. Woods won eight majors whilee with Harmon, including seven in 11 attempts and an unprecedented sweep of them in 2000-01.dddddddddddd They parted in 2003. Woods went to Hank Haney and produced another memorable stretch with an entirely different swing. In a two-year period covering 34 tournaments, Woods won 18 times (including four majors) and was runner-up six times. That ended with the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, right before his fourth and most invasive knee surgery. That was his 14th major, and Woods has not won another since. He remains four short of the record held by Jack Nicklaus. Haney announced in May he was leaving Woods, although those close to Woods felt a split was imminent. Woods went through most of 2010 without a coach until hooking up with Foley for the first time at the PGA Championship in 2010 at Whistling Straits. Woods won three times on the PGA Tour in 2012, and then delivered a five-win season in 2013 when he returned to No. 1. But he rarely challenged in the majors, some of that because of injury. He missed two majors in 2011 while letting leg injuries fully heal. Woods had a share of the 36-hole lead in the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in 2012, but he was not a factor on Sunday. He was two shots off the lead going into the final round of the 2013 British Open and fell back quickly. He missed two more majors this year because of injury. Foley, who first worked with Calgarys Stephen Ames, has Mahan and former U.S. Open champion Justin Rose among his clients. "It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport," Foley said. "I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him." ' ' '
