Jim Leyland to manage Team USA in World Baseball Classic

Jim Leyland is heading back into the dugout.

But this time, he won’t be wearing a major league uniform.

As first reported by Jon Morosi, the former Detroit Tigers manager will manage the U.S. team in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

“I’m flattered,” Leyland said….

Leyland’s coaching staff will include former Tigers star and current Tigers special assistant Alan Trammell, former Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones, Toledo Mud Hens manager Lloyd McClendon, Marcel Lachemann and Willie Randolph.

These Tigers’ managers were ejected the most times

A consequence of the challenge/replay system has been a decrease in the number of on-field arguments between managers and umpires. While fans don’t go to a ballpark to see their manager debate with an umpire they’ve probably never heard of, the argument was a part of baseball history and it’s provided some memorable moments. Who doesn’t remember Earl Weaver flipping out at a bad call and engaging in a profanity-filled exchange with the men in blue? Well, they wear black now, but…

Thanks to the fantastic work of Retrosheet, which has gathered the play-by-play and/or box scores of nearly every game in history dating back to before Grover Cleveland was president, we have a list of every ejection for a player, manager, or coach since at least 1901. I decided to take a look at which Tigers’ managers have been ejected the most times.
