Marichal to manage in Futures Game

Hall of Famer Juan Marichal, who spent all but the final two years of his 16-year major-league career with the Giants, will be one of the managers for the Futures Game, one of the events leading up to the July 10 All-Star Game at AT&T Park, it was announced Wednesday.

Marichal, who appeared in nine All-Star Games — all with the Giants — and earned the nickname “Dominican Dandy,” will manage the World team in the July 8 game, which features the top minor-leaguers, regardless of level. Marichal, who was born in the Dominican Republic and was MVP of the 1965 All-Star Game, recorded 238 of his 243 career victories in a Giants uniform.

Dave Winfield, also a Hall of Famer who played for six teams during his 22-year career, will manage the U.S. team in the Futures Game. Winfield played in the All-Star Game 12 times.

Rosters for the Futures Game will be announced June 21.
