The Atlanta Braves have exercised their 2024 option on manager Brian Snitker. He will now continue to manage the Braves until at least 2024, barring a firing, after winning the 2021 World Series against the Houston Astros.
The Atlanta Braves’ Twitter account announced the news on Tuesday.

Snitker, 66-years-old, has been the manager of the Braves since 2016. If he finishes out his contract, which now is picked up for three more seasons, he will have been have been Atlanta’s skipper for almost a full decade.
Atlanta’s patience paid off with Snitker, who is 441-390 as a manager. He took a team that lost its star player in Ronald Acuna, Jr. and managed to win the World Series over the Astros, who are still regaining trust after their infamous cheating scandal. On his way to the Fall Classic, his team dethroned the reigning champion Dodgers, who had one of the deepest rosters in baseball.
