Bichette won't return as Rockies hitting coach

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies hitting coach Dante Bichette says he's decided against returning for another season.

The former Rockies slugger made the announcement Tuesday. Colorado is hitting a league-leading .271.

Bichette had rejoined the organization this year under manager Walt Weiss. Bichette and Weiss had played together.

This was the first major league coaching position for the 39-year-old Bichette. He was a four-time All-Star and was runner-up for the 1995 NL MVP award.
