Cubs Manager, Joe Maddon, a great actor?

During the Cub game the other night there were the usual shots of Manager Joe Maddon on the steps of the dugout studying the action on the field.  Bespectacled, his face had  the noticeable white stubble that results from skipping a shave or two.

As I looked more  closely at his scruffy  physiognomy, it dawned on me how much he resembled at that moment the legendary actor Spencer Tracy, especially as he appeared in the movie “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”.

  • Unfortunately, Edwin Jackson is coming to dinner, and he isn't bringing hors-d'oeuvre or crudite.

    But, again, Spencer seems to have a longer face.
