Tigers pick former rival, hire Gardenhire as new manager

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers have hired Ron Gardenhire as their manager, bringing the longtime Minnesota Twins skipper back to the AL Central to take over a team in the middle of a significant rebuilding process.

The Tigers announced the move Friday, saying Gardenhire has agreed to a three-year contract. Then Gardenhire was introduced at a news conference at Comerica Park.

"I've been here, battled here against this team for a long time," Gardenhire said. "Always respected it."
