Baseball Factoid...

The winner of the 2006 World Series, no matter who it is will be led by a manager for only the second time in history who will have won for two differnt teams in both the American League and the National League. Jim Leyland led the Natinal League's Florida Marlins to a title in 1997 and Tony LaRussa won for the American League's Athletics in 1989.

Sparky Anderson was the first with the NL's Cincinatti Reds of 1975,1976 and the AL's Detroit Tigers of 1984.

If Jim Leyland wins with the Tigers, look for Detroit to hire Jack McKeon and Bob Brenly after Leyland leaves.
