CINCINNATI -- Dick Pole, Dusty Baker's bench coach with the
Chicago Cubs the last four seasons, was hired Tuesday as the
Cincinnati Reds' pitching coach.
The 56-year-old was a pitching coach for the Cubs, the Giants,
the Angels, the Indians and the Expos before becoming a bench
coach. He replaces Vern Ruhle, who was sidelined much of last
season because of cancer and has been reassigned within the
Pole's hiring completes manager Jerry Narron's staff. The Reds
hired Brook Jacoby as their hitting coach last week.
