Jim Leyland has decided to manage the Detroit Tigers for at least one more season. He has signed a one-year contract for 2013, the organization announced Tuesday morning.

In today's NHL, a 3.38 goals-against average would keep a goalie on the bench. For Grant Fuhr, it meant induction into the Hall of Fame on Monday. Joining him were Pat LaFontaine, Detroit Red Wing owner Mike Ilitch and longtime junior coach Brian Kilrea. Of course, Fuhr's goals-against average doesn't reflect his full worth. He won 403 games -- seventh all-time -- won the Vezina Trophy once and the Jennings Trophy once and played on five Stanley Cup winners in Edmonton.

Seeking an economic "grand slam" to spur downtown development, this struggling industrial city announced Friday a plan to build a new $235-million baseball stadium largely financed by private interests.

John Ziegler's tenure as NHL president began in 1977 with cantankerous Harold Ballard mocking him, in public, as an "office clerk" and a "know-nothing shrimp." Such comments by the late owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs became much of the soundtrack for Ziegler's tumultuous 15-year reign as the league's president. Ziegler, 58, is expected to announce today that he will resign on Sept. 30.

Mike Ilitch took over as owner of the Detroit Tigers and said his goals include signing Cecil Fielder to a long-term contract, retaining Manager Sparky Anderson and bringing back broadcaster Ernie Harwell. Ilitch, who completed his purchase of the Tigers from Thomas Mongahan, said he would take at least a year to study whether the team should rebuild Tiger Stadium or move to a new ballpark. He also said he hoped to bring back former general manager Bill Lajoie, who quit in January 1991.
