San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced on Monday that he will coach one final season. He said the 2019 season will be his final one as a manager. 

Bochy — who has been managing Big League teams since 1995 — informed the team during a meeting on Monday morning. He will be 64-years-old on April 16th.

The Landes de Bussac, France native will be managing the Giants for his 13th season in 2019. As the Giants manager, he has gone 975-969 during the regular season. 

During his tenure, the team has won three Pennants and three World Series Championships. 

Last season, the Giants went 73-89. San Francisco has missed the playoffs the last two seasons, as the team also went 64-98 in 2017. 

The Giants last made the playoffs after the 2016 season when the team went 87-75. The team defeated the New York Mets in the one-game NL Wild Card Game. 

Then, in the NL Divisional Series, the Giants were defeated 3-1 by the Chicago Cubs. 

San Francisco won the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014 under Bochy. However, since the last World Series, the team has had only two winning seasons in 2015 and 2016. 

Before becoming the Giants manager before the 2007 season, Bochy was the San Diego Padres manager for 12 seasons. He went 951-975 during his tenure there, including one postseason Pennant in 1998.
