DETROIT (P) -- Stanley R.
(Bucky) Harris resigned yesterday
as manager of the Detroit Tigers,
saying he cannot be the "fiery,
aggressive" skipper the club's new
owners say they want for 1957.
The 59-year-old, easy-going.
Harris wrote his letter of resigna-
tion Sept. 5 while the fifth-place
Tigers were in Kansas City. Ac-
cepted by President Spike Briggs,
the resignation becomes effective
at the end of the season.
It ends. his second tour as man-
ager of the Tigers and brings to an
end months of speculation since
the Detroit club changed hands in
mid-summer in baseball's biggest
financial transaction.
Fred Knorr, Michigan radio ex-
ecutive, heads the 11-man syndi-
cate that takes official control
Monday in the five-and-a-half
million-dollar deal. He. indicated
soon after the sale was announced
that there would be a change in
managers.
Briggs Critical
Briggs, who had returned Harris
to the Detroit helm in 1955 despite
five second-division finishes with
the club from 1929 through 1933,
had severely . criticized Harris'l
handling of the. Tigers during a
10-game losing streak earlier in
the season.
Briggs later apologized publicly!
and assured Harris his job was;
safe at least until the end of, the
current season.
Harris himself asked that his
resignation be announced yester-
day. The new owners say his suc-
cessor will be named following the
World Series.
Seeks Office Post
Speculation is that Harris may
accept a job as assistant general
manager of the Boston Red Sox.'
He has made no secret of his desire
to get out of the dugout and into
the front office.

clinch a tie for the National League
pennant, even if Brooklyn wins
all three of its games from the

Dodgers. The Pirates knocked the
