Cards begin process
to find new manager

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man who earned the nickname “Super Joe” with the St. Louis Cardinals and the organization’s long-time Triple-A manager were the first to interview for the team’s managing vacancy.
A person familiar with the search told The Associated Press the Cardinals began the search for Tony La Russa’s replacement by meeting with lower-key candidates Joe McEwing and Chris Maloney.
McEwing, a super sub with St. Louis in 1999, was hired as third base coach for new Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura earlier this week after success at the minor league level.
Maloney has managed the Cardinals Triple-A Memphis affiliate the last five years.
