Giants Manager Bruce Bochy To Retire After 2019 MLB Season

28

San Fransisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy will retire after the 2019 MLB season, the club announced Monday.

Bochy is entering his 13th season as Giants manager, the longest tenure in Major League Baseball. He’s won three World Series championships (2010, 2012 and 2014) with the Giants and posted a 979-965 record.

2019 will be Bochy’s 25th season as a Major League manager as he managed the San Diego Padres for 12 years. He won the NL Manager of the Year with the Padres in 1996.

Bochy is one of 10 MLB managers to win at least three World Series titles, according to Jon Morosi of the MLB Network. Nine of those managers are in the Hall of Fame and one day soon, Bochy will join them.

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports Bochy stated he’ll still be involved in the game in some capacity following his final season as Giants manager. He’s already spoken with Giants CEO Larry Baer about other roles in the organization. Regarding other clubs, it sure sounds like Bochy’s plan is to remain with San Fransisco as he said, “I’m a Giant.”
