The Texas Rangers have hired Bruce Bochy as their new manager. He has received a three-year agreement with the team.
Bochy has been out of coaching for the last several seasons. He last managed a team during the 2019 season with the San Francisco Giants.
The 67-year-old Bochy and Rangers general manager Chris Young know each other. Young previously played for Bochy when he managed the San Diego Padres during the 2006 season.

“As we went through the interview process, Bruce’s passion and excitement about returning to the dugout was very evident,” Young said. “It became clear he was the ideal individual to lead our club as we continue to build a championship culture here in Arlington.”
“Boch” takes over a team that went 68-94. Chris Woodward was fired by the Rangers on August 15th.
Woodward was replaced on an interim basis by Tony Beasley, who finished out the season. Under Beasley, the team went 16-31.
Bochy is a three-time World Series manager, all with the Giants. He guided San Francisco to World Series wins in 2010, 2012, and 2014.
He brings a 2,003-2,029 record to the team.

“Their vision and commitment to putting together a club that can contend and win year in and year out is impressive, and I became convinced I wanted to be a part of that,” Bochy said. “If I was going to return to managing, it had to be the right situation. I strongly believe that to be the case with the Rangers, and I can’t wait to get started.”
