- Paul Molitor, Twins: .306
- Terry Francona, Indians: .274
- Robin Ventura, White Sox: .267
- Brad Ausmus, Tigers: .251
- Ned Yost, Royals: .212
What, you might ask, is the use in publishing a Tigers Today installment a day late? Well, you have a point. Nevertheless, I want to make sure we cover each day of the year in this format — even if it means dropping one in here 24 hours behind schedule.
Tigers’ Record: 8-7
