The Iowa Cubs are back on the diamond again after a break for the Triple-A All-Star game. Spokesman Dave Raymond says the end of the first half of the season was a whirlwind as manager Bruce Kimm was called up to manage the parent Chicago Cubs. Pitching coach Pat Listach replaced Kimm as I-Cubs manager, which Raymond says may lead to more changes in the team. He expects them to run more than they did under Kimm. Raymond says the roster of the team will likely change too, as the change to Kimm as manager is a signal the parent Cubs are trying to make some moves. Raymond says the Iowa club got a lot of publicity out of the managerial change. He says that doesn’t usually happen when players are sent up or down to the parent club.He expects the publicity to help what’s already been a good year for attendance.The I-Cubs won their first home game under Listach last night 8-5 over Salt Lake.
