Tigers hire Gardenhire as manager

(TSX / STATS) -- The Detroit Tigers opted for experience in their managerial search and announced Friday the appointment of Ron Gardenhire to run the club with a three-year contract.

Gardenhire, who turns 60 on Tuesday, is deeply familiar with the American League Central after spending 13 seasons in the division as manager of the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota made six postseason appearances during his tenure from 2002-2014.

"I couldn't be more thrilled to be named manager of the Detroit Tigers," Gardenhire said in a statement. "After managing against the Tigers for so many years, I know first-hand what a great baseball town Detroit is and that the fans here are some of the most passionate in all of sports.
