Players Take To Twitter To Thank Jim Leyland

After 8 seasons as the Detroit Tigers manager, Jim Leyland called it quits today saying the fuel in his tank was getting low. While some fans are happy to see him go, his players clearly appreciate him.

Jim Leyland is said to be an old school guy.  He probably doesn’t even have a Twitter account.  But If he did however he would be flattered by the tweets from his players.





Judging by the tweets Jim Leyland was respected and loved by his players. Probably because of his managerial concept of keeping problems in-house and not singling anyone out.

Everybody needs someone to believe in them. It was clear that Jim Leyland believed in his players.  And his players are clearly grateful.
