An interview with Joe Maddon
Rays manager prepares his team for Game 3 of the World Series
You grew up in Hazleton, went to school at Lafayette. Did you ever make the road trip down to Philly to catch Springsteen at the Spectrum or Tower Theater?JOE MADDON: I did not. I never got to see him down there. I got to see him at Lafayette, eventually had to see him out west in both in Phoenix and at The Pond in Anaheim. I never really made the trek down here. I probably did not have enough gas money at that time. What kind of role do you envision for Perez in the games here? How interesting is he a guy to be around and to deal with him?
