Manuel Chooses Torre For NL All Star Staff

I saw this on Comcast Sports Net this morning and Todd Zolecki posted it on the Zo Zone:

One of the perks of being the National League Champion is that the manager gets to coach his respective league the following year. Charlie Manuel will do such when the NL plays the AL on July 14 in St. Louis. Joe Maddon of Tampa Bay will coach the AL.

Each manager gets to choose 2 managers from their league to be on their staff. Manuel already made one selection, choosing Joe Torre of the Dodgers to be one of his assistants. A little fun fact: Torre chose Manuel as one of his coaches in the infamous tie in the 2002 game in Milwaukee.
