New Contract For Gardy

New Contract For Gardy

The Minnesota Twins and manager Ron Gardenhire have agreed on a two-year contract extension through the 2015 season.

Gardenhire was in the final year of his contract and his 12 years with the Twins make him the second-longest tenured manager in the big leagues.

With three straight seasons of at least 93 losses, Gardenhire’s job was thought to be in jeopardy. Instead, the Twins brought back the 2010 AL manager of the year and his entire staff, too.

Gardenhire has a career record of 998-947 as a major league manager, and trails only Tom Kelly on the Twins All-Time win list.
