Miami Marlins hired Skip Shoemaker as new manager

The Miami Marlins on Tuesday announced the appointment of Skip Shoemaker as the new team manager.

Shoemaker was a first-time manager, playing 11 seasons in a major, with the first eight coming with the St. Louis Cardinals. He was part of two World Championship-winning Cardinals teams in 2006 and 2011.

“As we continue to grow as an organization, we felt it was important to find an individual who was part of a winning culture,” Marlins general manager Kim Ng said in a statement Tuesday. “Having been a member of two championship teams, coupled with his reputation for perseverance and getting every ounce of his ability, Skip will be a great example to our players. His leadership style, teaching skills and attention to detail made him an obvious choice as the new club manager.”

Shoemaker spent this season as a coach on the Cardinals’ bench after four seasons as an assistant at the San Diego Padres.

“I am so excited and grateful for that [owner Bruce Sherman]”Kim and the Marlins Foundation have given me the opportunity to manage a very talented team,” Schumaker said in a statement. Florida – and I can’t wait to get started.”

Shoemaker replaces Don Mattingly, whose contract was not renewed at the end of the season. Mattingly served as head coach for Miami for seven seasons and left the position as the series’ all-time leader in the wins.
