It's official: Mark McGwire is the new Dodgers batting coach

LOS ANGELES -- Mark McGwire is the new Los Angeles Dodgers hitting coach, general manager Ned Colletti announced Wednesday.

McGwire informed the St. Louis Cardinals that he was accepting the Dodgers offer last week. The Cardinals on Friday promoted John Mabry to be McGwire's successor.

"Mark has been able to translate his success as a big league hitter into his work as hitting coach with the Cardinals," Colletti said in a release. "He earned the respect of both veterans and young players while in St. Louis and the offensive numbers the Cardinals produced under his tutelage speak for themselves. We're excited to have him join our coaching staff and anticipate great things from his work with our hitters in 2013 and beyond."

In McGwire's three seasons in St. Louis, the Cardinals have led the NL in batting average (.269) and on-base percentage (.337) and ranked second in runs (2,263) and fourth in slugging percentage (.416).

3. First meeting/practice

Okay, team, welcome to first practice. Everyone reach underneath their chair and find what I put there. Good. Now open them up. Take 4 of these pills everyday. All right, good practice! Now get out of here.
