Tigers' Manager Jim Leyland Stepping Down

DETROIT (AP) -- Jim Leyland is stepping down as manager of the Detroit Tigers.

Leyland announced the move Monday, two days after the Tigers were eliminated from the AL championship series by Boston in six games.

The 68-year-old Leyland led Detroit to the World Series twice in eight years, and the Tigers have won the last three AL Central titles.

Leyland has been working under one-year contracts the last couple years, saying he was content to wait until after the season to address his status.

Leyland was 700-597 with the Tigers. In all, he is 1,769-1,728 with the Tigers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. He won the World Series in 1997 with Florida.
