Rays keep pitching coach Hickey

The Devil Rays are keeping pitching coach Jim Hickey, who jeopardized his employment with a DUI just after the season.

Hickey pleaded no contest Monday to a DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. He has to perform 50 hours of court-ordered community service and will do more through the Rays, according to a press release.

"I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue coaching for the Rays,” Hickey said in a release. “Last month, I let down my family, the organization, and the Tampa Bay community. I am truly sorry for my actions."
