Former Shannon High standout Clark will return on Astros coaching staff

By NEMS Daily Journal

After the worst season in franchise history, you might wonder if the Houston Astros would make any changes to its coaching staff – including
third base coach Dave Clark, who was a star at Shannon High school.
But general manager Ed Wade has invited manager
Brad Mills and all of the Astros’ coaches back for 2012.
“It’s a work in progress, and it’s going to continue to be a work in progress,” Mills said after his team lost 8-0 to St. Louis on Wednesday night.
Houston finished the year 56-106, the first time the franchise had lost more than 97 games in a season.
Clark, 49, served as interim manager of the Astros at the end of the 2009 season.
