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.
