The Milwaukee Brewers have decided to bring back interim coach Dale Sveum to be their new hitting coach. "This is something I have always wanted to do," Sveum said Saturday, "This has been a passion of mine, and I'm glad Ken is giving me the opportunity." Sveum is very familiar with the team and should help Macha early on familiarize himself with the team. If the Brewers have success in 2009, it is possible Sveum will find himself managing again. However, he didn't prove himself in his first attempt at it.
