Former Boston Red Sox hitting coach reveals why he decided to leave

Some Boston Red Sox fans might have been a bit confused when Tim Hyers left for Arlington for the Texas Rangers. Now everyone knows why he left.

The Boston Red Sox had a pretty solid hitting coach in Tim Hyers. During his time with the Red Sox, Hyers had some pretty solid rosters to work with and plenty of talent to help with coaching.

When Hyers ultimately decided to leave the Red Sox in favor of the Texas Rangers at Arlington, some people in Boston may have been a little confused.

However, thanks to some solid reporting from the good folks at, everyone now knows why Hyers ended up moving from Boston to Arlington. That’s because Hyers shared his reasons for leaving the Red Sox with Christopher Smith.

According to Smith’s account, Hyers listed the following reasons for leaving Boston in favor of Arlington:

“It was a new challenge for me,” said Hyers. “Maybe they needed a new voice. Perhaps. Maybe I needed a new scenery, a new environment to keep moving.”

As Smith reports, Hyers didn’t leave the Red Sox for financial reasons, the Red Sox did what they could to keep him in town.

“They did everything they could to bring me back,” Hyers explained. “The Red Sox have been very generous to me. It was very open. It was my call.”

It’s never a bad thing to leave a job on your own terms and leave things on good terms with your previous employer. That your boss is doing everything to keep you around is probably a really good sign that you’re good at your job.

That certainly seems to be the case with the Red Sox and Hyers. Of course, given Boston’s performance this season, Red Sox fans are likely to want Hyers out of Rangers and back as soon as possible. Former Boston Red Sox hitting coach reveals why he decided to leave
