Tuesday night, the Chicago Cubs beat the visiting Cincinnati Reds (CHC 9, CIN 5) to give manager Joe Maddon the 1,000th win of his managerial career. Maddon is now 1,000-871 all-time. Most of those wins came with the Tampa Bay Rays, of course.
Maddon celebrated his 1,000th managerial win by enjoying a glass of wine during his postgame press conference:
On Wednesday, Maddon's foundation Respect90 announced they would further celebrate his 1,000th win by donating 1,000 meals to needy families in Chicago and Tampa.
Well done. Maddon is known for being a quirky and outside-the-box thinker as manager, but he does an awful lot in the community, and that's more important than anything he's accomplished on the field.
