*Jim Leyland stepped down Monday as the manager of the Detroit Tigers, announcing his departure two days after Detroit was eliminated by the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series. The 68-year-old veteran manager led the Tigers for eight seasons, which included three division titles and two pennants. Leyland, who made his managerial debut in 1986 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, said in a news conference yesterday, “I’m not totally retiring today, I’m just not going to be in the dugout anymore.” Leyland told the Tigers in early September that he didn’t want to return as manager, but he expects to remain with the organization in some capacity.
