Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella announced Tuesday that he will retire at the end of the season, ending a storied and often colorful career that included 18 years in the majors as a player and another 22 as a manager.

The 66-year-old Piniella, who has reached the World Series five times in his career and has three championship rings, said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family.

Announcing his retirement now, Piniella added, gives the team time to find a replacement.
