Trammell is Cubs' New Bench Coach

The Chicago Cubs hired a familiar face today, naming former Tigers skipper and SS Alan Trammell bench coach:

The Chicago Cubs today announced that six-time American League All-Star shortstop Alan Trammell has agreed to a two-year deal to be the Cubs bench coach and infield instructor.
At the time of his retirement in 1996, Trammel had more career home runs (185) and a higher fielding percentage (.977) than any Hall-of-Fame shortstop. He turned 1,321 double plays in his career, mostly with teammate Lou Whitaker.
