9/20 Gary Hughes will not return to Cubs

Gary Hughes, who was a special assistant to Cubs general manager Jim Hendry since October 2002, has told the team he will not return in 2012. Hughes has spent 45 years working in professional baseball with the Giants (1967-72), Mets (1973-76), Mariners (1977), Yankees (1978-85), Expos (1986-91), Marlins (1992-98), Rockies (1999), Reds (2000-02) and Cubs. He was named one of the top 10 scouts of the 20th century by Baseball America, and in December 2009, was named West Coast Scout of the Year, as voted on by his peers. In February 2008, he was inducted into the Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame.

Is he retiring or going elsewhere?

Carrie, was Gary known for any one particular “move” (good or bad) during his tenure?
