Chip Hale interviews for Mariners manager job today
The A's bench coach is one of many on Seattle's list as the Mariners look for a replacement for Eric Wedge.
BOSTON -- A's bench coach Chip Hale is interviewing with the Mariners today.
Seattle has kept a pretty tight lid n their lengthy list, but CBSSports.com previously reported Hale was a candidate, as well as Giants coach Ron Wotus, ex-Reds manager Pete Mackanin and Red Sox coach Torey Lovullo. The list is thought to be two dozen names, though.
Hale, 48, has been a longtime major-league coach. He was a candidate for the Mets managerial job that went to Terry Collins.
He was a major-league infielder who hit .277 over several years but is perhaps best remembered for a minor-league game when he hit a fly ball and Rodney McCray ran right through the fence, one of the most replayed plays in history.
