The Texas Rangers took a gamble on manager Bruce Bochy. He had been out of coaching since he retired following the 2019 season with the San Francisco Giants.
The Rangers saw something in the three-time World Series Champion that they believed in. And the rest of the players believed in their manager.
Bochy is now a four-time World Series Champion after guiding the Rangers to the World Series Championship on Wednesday night. He helped guide the Rangers to a 4-1 series win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

It is the Rangers’ first World Series Championship. As a result of Bochy’s win, he is now the sixth manager to win at least four World Series Championships. Before joining the Rangers, he won World Series Championships with the Giants in 2010, 2012, and 2014.
Currently, only three managers have more World Series Championships than Bochy. Connie Mack has five, while Joe McCarthy and Casey Stengel have seven World Series Championships each.
