Jim Leyland Is Stepping Down As Detroit Tigers Manager
Reports say that Leyland told the team that he was going to retire on the flight home from Boston, and that he plans to make it official today.
Leyland was managing under a one year contract after speculation that he would retire last year when the Tigers were swept out of the world series.
Love him or hate him, Leyland has led the Tigers to 3 straight American League Central Championships, and a World Series appearance.
That doesn’t seem to be enough for some Tiger fans who are hungry for a world championship.
Who will replace Leyland is the question that will be sitting on Tiger fans minds for the next few months.
