Marlins hire GM Dan Jennings as team's next manager
Tuesday May 19th, 2015

Miami Marlins general manager Dan Jennings is now the field manager, too, so Ichiro Suzuki found a way to make Jennings's uniform reflect his dual responsibilities. 

Before the Marlins' game against the Diamondbacks on Monday, Ichiro gave his new manager a tie to wear.

Jennings surely feels more comfortable in a tie than in a baseball uniform. His last professional playing experience came in minor-league spring training in 1984. He coached an Alabama high school team in the 80's and then became a scout. He's been working in the Marlins' front office since 2002.

But now he's the manager, and he has to wear a jersey and baseball pants to work. It's kind of Ichiro to help his new boss with the transition.
