KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - George Brett is stepping down as interim hitting coach for the Kansas City Royals.
The Hall of Famer took the job May 30, with the Royals mired in an eight-game losing skid. He said he would do it for a month and wound up doing it for two.
He will return to his job as vice president of baseball operations for the Royals, the same job he's had since retiring as a player following the 1993 season.
General manager Dayton Moore says Brett did an incredible job.
