Cardinals promote David Bell to bench coach


November 3rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have signed David Bell to a two-year contract as bench coach to replace Mike Aldrete, who left last week for the same role with Oakland. The 42-year-old Bell was assistant hitting coach last year. He played in the majors for 12 years with six teams including the Cardinals. Bell was a minor league manager in the Reds organization from 2009-12 and third base coach with the Cubs in 2013 before joining St. Louis last year.

Aldrete coached with St. Louis from 2008-14. Also Monday, the Cardinals added catcher Ed Easley to the 40-man roster, which has five open slots after right-handers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon were claimed off waivers. Fornataro was taken by the Nationals and Rondon by the Rockies.

Lawsuit stalls work on planned sports complex

News, Sports

November 3rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — A court challenge has largely stalled the proposed development at the “Field of Dreams” movie site. In September 2012, a group of nearby property owners filed a lawsuit against Dyersville, claiming the City Council didn’t consider the impact commercial development would have on the surrounding area by rezoning the property from agricultural use.

Both sides are expected to appear in court next year for the case. Dyersville Mayor Alvin Haas says all local officials can do now is wait. Tentative construction deadlines have passed for the All-Star Ballpark Heaven project, a proposed $74 million baseball and softball complex for traveling youth tournament teams.
