CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella said he’s retiring after the Cubs’ game against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday so he can spend more time with his family.

The 66-year-old Piniella made the announcement in a release handed out by the team before the game. Third base coach Mike Quade has been promoted to interim manager.

Piniella said last month that he planned to retire at the end of the season. He missed four games this month to be with his ailing mother in Florida.

In 18 years in the majors as a player and another 22 as a manager, Piniella made five trips to the World Series and has three championship rings.
