Rangers Hire 3-Time World Champion As New Manager

The Texas Rangers have moved quickly to lock in their new skipper for 2023 and beyond. It was announced today that they've officially hired three-time World Series-winning manager Bruce Bochy.

The 67-year-old Bochy guided the San Francisco Giants to World Series championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014, one of only 10 managers in history to win three titles. In his 13 seasons at the helm in San Francisco, the Giants had seven winning seasons, four playoff appearances, plus the three NL pennants and World Series wins. He's served as a special advisor for the Giants for the past three years.

“In his 25 years with San Diego and San Francisco, Bruce was one of the most successful and respected managers in Major League Baseball," said Rangers Executive Vice President & General Manager Chris Young. "With a calm and steady presence, he has a remarkable ability to connect and communicate with players, coaches, and staff, and his teams have always played with maximum effort. His knowledge of the game, as well as his integrity, is unmatched."

Young, who played under Bochy in San Diego, added that "as we went through the interview process, Bruce’s passion and excitement about returning to the dugout was very evident. It became clear he was the ideal individual to lead our club as we continue to build a championship culture here in Arlington.”

Bochy signed a 3-year contract, and becomes the 20th manager in Rangers history.
