Former Tigers manager Jim Leyland to be grand marshal of Detroit's Thanksgiving parade

DETROIT (AP) - Organizers of Detroit's Thanksgiving parade say that former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland will be the grand marshal.

The Parade Company announced the selection Tuesday.

Leyland became manager of the American League club in 2005. He announced he was stepping down after the Tigers' 2013 season ended.

Leyland says it's an honor to be part of America's Thanksgiving Parade, which he says is "a cherished tradition" in Detroit.
