Manager Brian Snitker is starting his fourth season with the Atlanta Braves. He was named the National League Manager of the Year for leading the Braves to a first-place finish in the NL East. He has been instrumental in helping the Braves make a dramatic turnaround from their 5th-place finish in 2016.
Snitker’s son Troy, who grew up with his Dad in the Braves organization, is now the assistant hitting coach for the Houston Astros. He played two seasons in the Braves minor-league system before turning to coaching.
The father-son duo’s teams won’t get a chance to face each other during the regular season, but are hoping to see each other in the World Series.
