Bochy led the Giants to three World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014. He is the only manager to achieve 900-plus wins with the two different clubs – San Diego and San Francisco. His teams have advanced to eight postseasons and four World Series, three in San Francisco and once in San Diego. He is one of 10 managers to win at least three World Series titles and is just the fifth manager to win three World Series titles in five years.
His 1,853 wins is tops among active managers and is 15th in the history of MLB baseball. Bochy was named the 1996 National League Manager of the Year after leading the Padres to 91-71 record in his second season. Sporting News selected him as their NL Manager of the Year in 1996 and 1998.
In 1975 the Astros selected him 24th overall in the first round of the supplemental draft. A catcher, Bochy played nine seasons in MLB baseball with Houston, the New York Mets and San Diego from 1978-1987.
