John Mallee’s unexpected summer vacation isn’t permanent after all. The Schereville man was removed as the Florida Marlins’ hitting coach on June 8, but is now back in major league baseball.
“It was great to finally get a chance to see my sons (Austin, 7, and Johnny, 12) play baseball this year,” Mallee said, “but I’m so happy to be back in the game.”
Mallee accepted the position of senior adviser for baseball operations with the Toronto Blue Jays late last week after weighing several offers from different teams.
