Braves extend manager Brian Snitker through 2023
The Atlanta Braves on Friday extended manager Brian Snitker’s contract through the 2023 season, with a club option for 2024.
Snitker, 65, led the Braves to a 35-25 record and a third straight National League East title during last season’s shortened campaign.
“I am thrilled that Brian will continue to lead our club on the field and in the clubhouse,” Braves president Alex Anthopoulos said. “Three consecutive division titles speak to the impact of Brian and his staff, and we are pleased that he will continue to guide our club through 2023.”
Snitker is entering his 45th season in the organization and his fifth full season as manager. He was named the interim manager on May 17, 2016, before formally taking the helm on Oct. 11, 2016
Snitker, the 2018 NL Manager of the Year, has a 353-317 record and is the only manager in team history to reach the postseason in three of his first four seasons.
The Braves open the season on the road against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 1.
