Dent back with Yankees; will skipper Clippers

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Bucky Dent returned to the New York Yankees organization Tuesday, agreeing to manage the team's Columbus farm club in the International League.

Dent, whose playoff home run helped the Yankees beat Boston for the American League East title in 1978, spent three years as Columbus manager from 1987-89 and was the manager of the Yankees for parts of 1989 and 1990.

He then coached third base for the St. Cardinals under current Yankees manager Joe Torre for five years and was a bench coach in Texas for seven years before managing Kansas City's Omaha affiliate to second place in the Pacific Coast League last season.

"It's always been my goal to be a major league manager,'' Dent said. "It's been 12 years since I've been in the Yankees organization. It's a great organization with a great tradition and I'm glad to come back.''

Columbus was managed last year by Brian Butterfield and Stump Merrill and finished in last place.
