Detroit Tigers Fire Pitching Coach Bosio For Racially-Charged Comments

According to a report by Detroit TV station WXYZ, the Tigers this afternoon fired their pitching coach, Chris Bosio, for using "racially-charged language" towards a team employee. The 55-year-old Bosio pitched 11 MLB seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers and Seattle Mariners. Early in the 1993 season, Bosio "no-hit" the Red Sox. Until this season, he had served as pitching coach for the Chicago Cubs—winning a World Series title with that team in 2016.
