NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Mets have hired Cleveland Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway to be their new manager. Here are five things about the 42-year-old coach: 1. He pitched parts of five seasons in the major leagues. From 1999-2004, Callaway played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Anaheim Angels and Texas Rangers. While his career stats — 4-11 with a 6.27 ERA — will impress hardly anyone, he did win a World Series ring with the Angels in 2002. 2. After suffering an elbow injury while playing in Korea in 2007, Callaway stepped in to serve as the interim head coach of Texas A&M International University in ’08.

The year before he was promoted to Indians pitching coach, the team had the worst ERA in the American League (4.79). Since he took over in 2013, they have a league-best 3.65 ERA. In 2014, one of his pitchers, Corey Kluber, won the Cy Young Award. 4. He was the Gatorade Tennessee high school baseball player of the year in 1992 and could dunk a basketball as a 5-foot-10-inch freshman at Germantown High School in Tennessee. “Just a special athlete,” his former coach, Phil Clark, told The Memphis Commercial-Appeal last month. 5. Callaway is married (wife Anna) with two daughters, Catherine and Madeline.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA (CBSLA) — Strong Santa Ana winds and triple-digit heat have prompted Red Flag warnings across Southern California, where brush fires have already broken out in the relatively cooler overnight hours. A brush fire broke out in Rancho Cucamonga, near the 15 Freeway, just before 4:30 a.m. The fire was first reported to have scorched just an acre of brush, but gusty winds out in the area whipped it up before firefighters were able to get it under control. In the Tujunga-Sunland area, another brush fire was reported at 9:05 p.m. in the 11000 block of Oro Vista Avenue, near Big Tujunga Canyon Road. More than 50 firefighters quickly put it out after it scorched at least a half-acre of brush in the wash. Triple-digit temperatures and winds of up to 65 miles per hour are forecast for the canyons and mountains. Red Flag Warnings were up Monday in all the windiest locations, including the inland valleys and Santa Monica Mountains east and west of Malibu. We'll set records across the southland this afternoon… stay cool! Excessive Heat Warnings in effect #cbsla pic.twitter.com/VCfyqbmGEd — Danielle Gersh (@DanielleGersh) October 23, 2017 The strong winds are even expected to hit Dodger Stadium during Game One of the World Series on Tuesday, with Santa Anas possibly blowing over the outfield pavilion and directly toward home plate. The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority have enacted 24-hour patrols of the 72,000 acres of public parkland it manages in the Mulholland Corridor from Griffith Park west to Calabasas because of the high heat and strong winds. This year’s patrols were especially important, due to the record rainfall from the past season. The rain gave way to an abundance of grass that is now dry and a volatile fire risk. Anyone who sees suspicious activity in any of these public park areas can report it by calling (310) 456-7049 or 911. (© Copyright 2017 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.
