Padres exercise option in Bochy's contract

Postby WebHamster » Wed Feb 18, 2004 3:00 am

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego Padres announced Tuesday that the club will exercise a 2005 option in manager Bruce Bochy's contract. As per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not released.

The 48-year-old Bochy, who signed a four-year contract extension with a club option on April 4, 2000, will begin his 22nd consecutive season in the San Diego organization.

"Exercising the option in Bruce's contract ensures that one of the top managers in baseball and a tremendous baseball mind will remain in a Padres uniform through the 2005 season," said executive vice president and general manager Kevin Towers.

Bochy has the most wins of any manager in team history and has compiled a career mark of 694-746. With six more wins, Bochy will join Atlanta's Bobby Cox and New York Yankees skipper Joe Torre as the only active managers with at least 700 wins.

In nine seasons with the Padres, Bochy has guided his club to a pair of National League West titles (1996 and 1998). He also led the 1998 team to the NL pennant where San Diego was swept by the Yankees in the World Series.

Sick of those who are spineless.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
