Terry Collins is introduced as manager. No. 10 is a tribute to Jim Leyland.

Terry Collins said he intends to wear No. 10 as a tribute to Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland.

"He gave me my shot to get to the big leagues," Collins said, referring to their days with the Pirates. "And he's a great friend. So I wanted to wear it for him.

"Plus, my wife thinks I'm a 10. ... That's a joke."
