Prior to embarking into managing, Joe was a coach for the California Angels. But we will tell you a few things about Joe because FabWags is all about the WAGs!!

Joe Maddon Bio

In the first place, let me tell you that Joe Maddon was born February 8, 1954, in West Hazleton, Penn. He is the son of Albina Klocek, aka Beanie Maddon from Poland, and her husband, Joseph Anthony Maddonini, born in Italy, whose father Carmen Maddonini thought about shortening his family name since they were living in the United States. Carmen Maddon emigrated from Italy in the 1930s, became a U.S Citizen in 1921 at the age of 28, and opened C. Maddon & Sons Plumbing in 1936.

Joe Sr. took over the family’s plumbing business C. Maddon & Sons Plumbing and Heating, conveniently located below his apartment on 11th Street, where his wife, two sons Joe, Mark, and daughter Carmine also lived. While Joe chose a career in sports, his brother Mark took over their father’s business; his sister Carmine Parlatore became a nurse, she worked as a nurse for over two decades before she decided to quit and opened an antique store on Broad Street.

His father, famously known in Hazleton, PA as Joe the  Plumber, passed away in 2002; Beanie continues to live in the same apartment, back in 2008, the New York Times talked to Beanie, then 75.

“He could have the worst day in the world, and come in the door and you’d never know it,” Beanie Maddon, 75, said by telephone Monday from that apartment. In true Maddon fashion, she still works regularly as a bookkeeper and waitress — call her a utility player — at the Third Base Luncheonette in town.

“He never complained. Never,” she said of her husband. “When he’d run into a problem down in the shop, and he couldn’t find a part, he’d make it. That’s the kind of man he was: ‘O.K., don’t worry. Wait, we’ll get it done.’ ”

Albina Maddon was born in 1933, back in April 2015; while her son coached the Chicago Cubs, Mrs. Madden was invited to throw the first pitch before the game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Joe’s two siblings are Carmine Irene Maddon, born on May 23, 1955, and Mark Anthony, born on September 21, 1958; they reside in Pennsylvania and St. Augustine, Florida, respectively. Mark is a commercial and industrial sales representative at Coast Pump Water Technologies.

Where did Joe Maddon go to college?

After he graduated from Hazleton High School, Joe Maddon attended Lafayette College, where he was a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity, played football and baseball (first shortstop and pitcher and later was a catcher), and graduated in 1976. Since he left Lafayette, Joe has visited the campus many times, but his visit on September 3, 2010, was to receive an honorary doctor of letters.

“I always love coming back home,” he said before a talk with students, faculty and friends. “I love the area. I always brag on the area. I brag on Hazleton and on Lafayette College all the time. I’m so fortunate and so proud to be from both places.”

I was down to the old (Zeta Psi) fraternity house, and it looks fantastic,” he said. “Every time I walk on this campus I get such a warm feeling. I had a great 31/2 years here, and the people are very special.”

Joe Maddon Career

Maddon’s career splits into two phases, the first one as a player, as a catcher spent four seasons playing with the Angeles Angels’ the minor league team the Quad Cities Angels, the Santa Clara Padres, and later for the Salinas Angels, finished that phase, hitting .267 with 5 home runs in 514 at-bats. He quit playing in 1979.

He started his coaching career with the Angels in 1979 as a scout, later their Minor League roving hitting instructor, served as a first base coach, bench coach, and interim manager between 1995 until 2006; he left the organization after 31 years.

On November 15, 2005, he signed a deal to manage the Tampa Bay Rays, formerly known as Tampa Bay Devil Rays; three years later, under Maddon, the Tampa Bay Rays reached their first American League Eastern Division title.

He agreed to a contract extension with the Tampa Bay Rays on May 25, 2009, led the rays to their second playoffs appearance, but sadly lost the wild card to the Texas Rangers 3 games to 1. Joe was named AL Manager of the Year that year and agreed to a second contract extension with the Rats in February 2012. He left the Tampa Bay Rays with a record of 705 losses and 754 wins in October 2014.

Nearly a month later, Joe Maddon agreed to a five-year contract worth $25 million with the Chicago Cubs; under Joe’s management, the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series title in 108 years after defeating the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 in 2016.

Two years after the World Series title, the Chicago Cubs decided not to extend Maddon’s contract; he left the Cubs after the 2019 season.

The Los Angeles Angels announced Joe Maddon would return to their team on October 16, 2019, that same day he agreed to a three-year contract with the Angels.

“We are thrilled that Joe is coming back home and bringing an exciting brand of baseball to our fans,” general manager Billy Eppler said. “Every stop he has made throughout his managerial career, he has built a culture that is focused on winning while also allowing his players to thrive. We believe Joe will be a great asset for our club and look forward to him leading the team to another World Series championship.”

The Chicago Cubs’ current manager is David Ross, who, before becoming the 55th manager of the Cubs, played as a catcher for the team from 2014 to 2016. Maddon left the Cubs in September 2019; his five-year contract with the Cubs was not renewed, becoming a free agent.

“We’re both going to move on,” Maddon said. “Hopefully, the Cubs are going to flourish. Hopefully, I get a chance to do this someplace else. But there are no tears shed. It’s a good moment for everybody. And we’re both excited about our futures.”

After Joe Maddon’s departure, the Chicago Cubs announced they hired their former catcher David Ross as their new manager; Ross and the Cubs agreed to a three-year contract on July 24, 2020.

“We are thrilled to name David Ross as the 55th manager in franchise history,” Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said in a statement. “David is as gifted a leader as I’ve ever come across, and I expect him to become a great manager.”
