“I am very pleased that Alex will be leading the Atlanta Braves’ baseball operations for years to come,” chairman Terry McGuirk said in a statement. “Since he joined the organization, Alex has continued the winning tradition that Braves fans have come to expect.”

Anthopoulos has been with the Braves since November 2017 when he was named their Executive Vice President and General Manager. Snitker took over on an interim basis in May 2016 as the team’s manager.

He was then named the team’s permanent manager in October 2016. Since taking over, he has guided the team to back-to-back National League East titles.

“Winning consecutive division titles illustrates the leadership and impact of Brian and his staff,” Anthopoulos said in a statement. “We are happy to know they will be leading the Braves through the 2021 season.”
