1000 Words: Farewell, Lou
Going into the books as one of baseball’s all-time great managers, Lou Piniella said farewell to Wrigley Field and to the baseball dugout yesterday. Piniella had intended to retire from managing after the season, but his mother’s recent health issues convinced him the appropriate time had come.
Fans gave Piniella numerous standing ovations, including one as he exchanged lineup cards with Braves legend Bobby Cox before the game. Cubs team photographer Stephen Green was in the huddle to capture the emotional moment.
