The St. Louis club said on the 13th (Korean time) that Holiday announced his intention to resign. St. Louis announced the appointment of Joe McEwing (51), who served as third base coach for the Chicago White Sox last year, as their new bench coach.
Holliday was hired as the St. Louis bench coach in November last year. But he resigned before he even started spring camp. The reason for his resignation was said to be that he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Holliday, who made his big league debut with the Colorado Rockies in 2004, is a slugger with a batting average of 0.299, 316 homers, and 1220 RBIs in 1903 games while playing 15 seasons in the MLB. He was named an All-Star seven times and also won the Silver Slugger four times.
He even has a championship ring. Having played for St. Louis from 2009 to 2016, he shared the St. Louis championship in 2011. After ending his career at the end of the 2018 season, he coached at Oklahoma State University until last year.
Meanwhile, McEwing, who took over as the new bench coach, played in the MLB from 1998 to 2006, and among them, he was in St. Louis from 1998 to 1999. He worked for the White Sox for 15 years starting in 2008. He also has a lot of experience as a bench coach. He served as bench coach for four years from 2017 to 2020. For the past two years he has coached third base.
