Brothers Alex and Joey Cora On Opposite Sides of the Diamond

Alex Cora can enjoy his first season as manager of the Boston Red Sox, now that he has a comfortable lead over the New York Yankees, heading into the final weeks of the season.

His older brother Joey, in his second season as a coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates, admires his brother’s accomplishments and fully understand the pressures of managing for a high-profile team like the Red Sox.

Both of the brothers had major-league playing careers.  Alex played 14 seasons, primarily with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox, with whom he got a World Series ring in 2007.  Joey played  11 seasons in the big-leagues, including one all-star season with Seattle in 1997.

The brothers didn’t face each other this season, but look forward to future competitions.
