Veteran San Francisco Giants driver Bruce Bochy announced Monday through the team’s Twitter account that he will step down and retire at the end of the 2019 season.
Bochy, 63, has led the Giants since the 2007 season and has won three World Series titles in the 2010, 2012 and 2014 seasons.
Before arriving at the Giants, Bochy led the San Diego Padres from the 1995 season to the 2006 season and in the 1998 season he managed to take the team to the World Series that they lost by a 4-0 sweep against the New York Yankees, with driver Joe Torre in the direction of the Bronx Bombers.
Bochy was chosen as the National League Driver of the Year in the 1996 season.
During the 24 years he has been a manager in the Major Leagues, Bochy has a losing record of 1,926-1,944 and is in the eleventh position of the list of all times with the wins he has achieved.
Bochy was also a Major League player for nine seasons as a receiver for the Houston Astros, the New York Mets and the Padres.
The Giants team has not wanted to make any official comment regarding the announcement of Bochy’s withdrawal. (USA), (EFE) .-
