Braves hitting coach quits after dismal season

ATLANTA (AP) Greg Walker has quit as hitting coach of the Atlanta Braves.

The move announced Tuesday was not a surprise. Walker's job was in jeopardy after the Braves struggled all season offensively, especially in the final month of the season while losing 18 of 25 games to fall out of playoff contention.

Walker says he told manager Fredi Gonzalez of his plans last weekend as the Braves closed out the season in Philadelphia. Walker had been the hitting coach for three years, coming to Atlanta after serving in the same position with the Chicago White Sox from 2003-11.
