Former Cardinal slugger Jack Clark has been hired as the new manager of the Frontier League’s Mid-Missouri Mavericks. Clark spent three years with the Redbirds. He led the team to World Series appearances in 1985 and 1987. Clark led the N.L. in walks and slugging percentage in 1987, while hitting 35 home runs with 106 RBIs. He’s perhaps most known for his dramatic three-run home run off Tom Niedenfuer that lifted the Cards to a victory in game six of the 1985 National League Championship Series. Clark spent the past year-and-a-half as hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This will be Clark’s second stint in the Frontier League. He was the first manager of the River City Rascals.
