Ron Gardenhire explains why he decided to retire immediately

Just moments ago, the Detroit Tigers held an abrupt press conference to announce that manager Ron Gardenhire has decided to retire, effective immediately.

After the announcement was made by Tigers GM Al Avila, Gardenhire spoke to the media and explained why he made the decision to walk away from baseball before the conclusion of the season.

Gardy noted that his original plan was to retire at the end of the season but that he has not been feeling well as of late, including stomach problems and shaky hands.

We certainly wish Ron the best with his health and we thank him for his time in baseball and especially with the Tigers.
