The Atlanta Braves just won their first World Series since 1995 and a huge part of that was manager Brian Snitker, who has been in charge since 2016. In the process, he's led them to four straight NL East titles and now, a ring. That being said, the organization is making sure Snitker is around for the long haul as they look to run it back in 2022. Via David O'Brien of The Athletic:

That means another three seasons in the Braves dugout for the 66-year-old, who is a lifer with this franchise. That puts Atlanta in good hands for the future with their young core intact and the return of Ronald Acuna and hopefully, Mike Soroka as well next year.

There's no doubt the players are a huge part of the Braves winning the Fall Classic, but Snitker's brilliance as a manager is extremely important, too. He's shown tremendous consistency in the role, evident by how good this group has played over the last number of years.

Snitker first began his professional career as a player with the Braves in 1977 but was released in 1980. Hank Aaron, who was the farm director at the time, immediately gave him a job within the organization as a roving instructor. Snitker eventually moved into a managerial role in 1982 in the Minors but didn't get his first big league managing job until the Braves hired him five years ago.

Needless to say, it was a great decision for both sides. The next step for Atlanta will be locking up Freddie Freeman for the long-term, who is a free agent this winter.
