Dante Bichette will resign after one season as Colorado Rockies hitting instructor citing family reasons.

"The tug of the family was too much" Bichette said. "I have unfinished business at home."

First-year manager Walt Weiss brought Bichette onto his staff before the season citing their long relationship and Bichette's passion and knowledge for hitting.

But multiple people close to the situation have said that Bichette has struggled with being away from his family this season.
