The Atlanta Braves announced Friday morning that they have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Alex Anthopoulos. The deal will keep Anthopoulos through the 2031 season.

“Alex and I have enjoyed a wonderful working relationship, and I look forward to that continuing for many years to come,” said Terry McGuirk, Chairman & CEO of Braves Holdings, LLC. “I have been around this game a very long time and know that Alex’s track record of success is truly something special. There is simply no one better in the business. This extension gives Alex the runway to make long-term decisions and the opportunity to continue his track record of assembling teams that are perennial contenders. I have the utmost confidence in his ability to deliver championship baseball for our fans well into the future.”

Anthopoulos was hired as the club’s Executive Vice President and General Manager on November 13, 2017. He was promoted to President of Baseball Operations in February of 2020. In six seasons, the Braves have gone 515-354, won six straight division titles and won the 2021 World Series. The 515 wins by the Braves are the third most in the majors since 2018.

“I’d like to thank Terry for his continued support and trust,” said Anthopoulos. “The Braves are an incredible organization to be a part of, and I’m proud of the success we’ve achieved together. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to lead baseball operations and to strive to bring another World Series to Atlanta.”
