HOUSTON (MCT) — Former University of Iowa dual-sport athlete and Iowa Cubs outfielder Bo Porter has been selected as the manager of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros, the organization announced Thursday. Porter was an outfielder and defensive back for the Hawkeyes from 1990-94.
“We are thrilled to be announcing that Bo Porter is going to be our next manager,” said Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow. “He has a tremendous amount of experience and has worked under some great managers. He has seen different styles, worked under different managers and learned a lot from them.”
