Detroit manager Jim Leyland couldn't hold in his emotions after his Tigers clinched their third consecutive AL Central title on Wednesday night. The 68-year-old choked up while discussing the expectations heading into the season and thanked the Tigers fans.
"This was a tough year for the guys because the expectations were so high and it was almost like we were set up to fail. From day one of spring training, I told them, 'don't get caught up in the expectations, get caught up in how we're going to live up to those expectations,'" Leyland said trying to hold back tears. "And I think that's what they've done. And I want to say thank you to our fans. I'm so proud of you, what you've done for our ballclub and what you've done for me since I've been here. I just hope that.. I just hope you feel like you're getting your money's worth."
But those tears were quickly washed away with some champagne as Torii Hunter grabbed Leyland and carried him into the celebration. That's where Leyland suddenly broke out some dance moves.
