On Monday Detroit Tigers manager A.J. Hinch returned to Houston's Minute Maid Park for the first time since being fired as Astros manager during the sign-stealing scandal that roiled baseball not so long ago.
Prior to the first pitch of the game (DET-HOU GameTracker), the Astros honored Hinch with a video tribute, and the limited number of fans in attendance gave him a warm ovation.
Hinch also got a chance to reconnect with some of his former charges/colleagues from during his time in Houston:
Hinch spent five seasons as manager of the Astros, and over that span he compiled a 481-329 record.
