The team has announced they have come to terms on an extension with manager Brian Snitker through the 2023 season with a club option for 2024 the team announced this morning.
The reigning manager of the year, according to Baseball America, has been given a sense of job security with the extension. The ultimate players' manager, there’s no disputing the love the players have for the man, his passion for the game, and his willingness to defend his players.
Snitker has been working with this core of players for quite some time now and has been taking them to new heights seemingly every year - capped off by coming just one game short of earning a trip to the World Series in 2020. His career began as a player in the Braves organization back in 1977, and now with this contract will be with the team for at least 47 years - an incredible accomplishment. Since taking over the Braves managerial position he has now won the manager of the year award twice, once given by the Baseball Writers of America, and now again by Baseball America. Snitker has a record of 353-317 as the manager and has seen his team improve in the win column every single year (excluding the shortened 2020 season).
