Tigers Name Ausmus Manager
Brad Ausmus is the new manager of the Detroit Tigers. The former major league catcher replaces Jim Leyland, who stepped down after the postseason. Ausmus played 18 years in the majors, including three with Detroit. He has never been a manager at the major or minor league level. Leyland led the Tigers to two World Series appearances in eight years with the team. Detroit went 93-69 this past season and won the AL Central for the third straight season.
