Slaught resigns from Tigers; Van Slyke to return
DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers hitting coach Don Slaught resigned Friday, and Andy Van Slyke agreed to remain on as first-base coach for the AL champions.
"The drain of being away from my family and other business interests proved to be too much," Slaught said in a statement. "I love coaching and I enjoyed my time with the players, a special group that got us all to the World Series."
Slaught said he doesn't want to miss any more time with his wife and four children.
