CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have hired Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum as their new manager.
The Cubs announced the move Thursday and said he would be introduced at a news conference Friday at Wrigley Field.
Sveum replaces Mike Quade, who was fired after the season by Theo Epstein, the team's new president of baseball operations. The Cubs finished 71-91 after a disappointing season that extended their infamous championship drought to 103 seasons.
