The White Sox will name Todd Steverson as their new hitting coach after the conclusion of the World Series, a Major League source confirmed on Friday. Steverson, 42, replaces Jeff Manto, who was fired as White Sox hitting coach days before the conclusion of the season. In a past interview with the Modesto Bee, Steverson talked about his aggressive philosophy for hitters at the plate. The White Sox declined comment on the impending hire. That offense the Oakland Athletics flaunted all season caught the eye of the Chicago White Sox. The Southern California native and Arizona State product played in the major leagues with the Detroit Tigers in 1995 and the San Diego Padres in 1996, batting .256 over 31 career at-bats.
