Ventura to manage White Sox

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

Robin Ventura has accepted a multi-year contract to replace Ozzie Guillen as manager of the Chicago White Sox.

The former White Sox third baseman was hired by the club last June as a special adviser to director of player development Buddy Bell.  Ventura has no previous major league managing or coaching experience.

Ventura is the 17th former White Sox player to become the team's manager.

Guillen resigned last week after eight seasons and immediately was hired by the Florida Marlins as their manager.
