Josh Beckett on Cora's Short Stint as Bench Coach
I always thought Alex watched the game differently than the rest of us did. I knew when he became a bench coach and left ESPN, and became the bench coach of the Astros, this was eventually going to happen. I didn't know it was going to be this quick."--Josh Beckett
After three years of working for ESPN Cora became a bench coach for the first time in 2017 for the Astros. He managed 3 games for the Astros this year when manager AJ Hinch was ejected.
