Detroit Tigers add to Kirk Gibson’s roles

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have hired former star Kirk Gibson as a special assistant to the general manager, and the team says he’ll also remain in his role as a commentator for Fox Sports Detroit.
The Tigers announced the move Monday, saying Gibson will assist in on-field duties at the major league and minor league levels, and be involved in personnel meetings.
Born and raised in Michigan, Gibson played 12 years with the Tigers and was on the team that won the World Series in 1984.
