Listach has interview with Brewers
Nationals third-base coach Pat Listach met for two hours with Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and assistant GM Gord Ash on Tuesday about Milwaukee’s vacant managerial position.
Listach said the interview went well and the trio talked about everything from the Major League roster to player development.
“It’s was tremendous,” Listach said by phone. “The interview was well planned. They asked the right questions. It was very detailed.”
Listach has a history with the Brewers. He was drafted by the Brewers in the fifth round of the 1988 First-Year Player Draft. He would go on to play five Major League seasons with the Brewers. His best year was in 1992, when he hit .290 with one home run, 47 RBIs, 54 stolen bases and 93 runs scored. He would win American League Rookie of the Year honors for that great season.
Listach has managerial experience. Listach managed in the Cubs’ Minor League system for four seasons, going 253-221. His best season was in 2008, when he guided Triple-A Iowa to an 83-59 record, and he is still respected by the organization.
