Roll Tide

Looks like Andy Phillips is calling it a career. At least as far as his playing days are concerned.

He's been hired by his alma mater, Alabama, as an assistant coach. He'll be their hitting coach.

Andy rattled around in the minors awhile after being nontendered by the Yankees. He got brief calllups by the Reds and Mets, then opted out of a minor league contract to play in Japan. He had half a good season with the Hiroshima Carp last year. This year, he spent an injury-ridden season on the Japanese equivalent of the DL and the minor leagues.

Best of luck to you, Andy, and thanks for the memories.
