I would like to announce that my retirement from baseball will only be a leave of absence. I have found out these last couple of days that it kills me too much to be away from the game of baseball. My return date will February 15th. I have agreed to take the family on vacation before I start another grueling season. If the Pioneers haven't hired a new coach by then we have agreed I would return but if they have I would be allowed to look at other teams. No other team is hiring I would sit out the season unless a mid-season firing would that place, then I could be hired then. Thank you for everyone’s kind words and hope to see you all next season.
