80-year-old McKeon is Marlins’ interim manager
“He is definitely going to light a fire under the guys over there if he does the same thing he did with us,” Pierre said. “He’s up in age, but I guess he can still move around enough to get out there every day. God bless him for even wanting to come back at 80 years old.”
After three successive winning seasons with Florida, McKeon retired as manager at age 74 in 2005. There had been a buzz for several years that he wanted to return to the dugout.
“I had a little siesta,” he said. “After I laid out for a year and a half or two years, I started to miss it.”
This is the second successive season Florida has changed managers in June. Rodriguez was a first-time major-league manager. In McKeon, the Marlins are going with experience _ lots of it.
“He has always been good with young kids, always. And they’ve got a young team,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “It will keep him energized. And as long as he can get to a cigar, he’ll be fine.”
