Bichette won't return to Rockies

Dante Bichette won't return as Colorado Rockies hitting coach

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.
