Jim Tracy resigns

|

DENVER –The Colorado Rockies announced today that Manager Jim Tracy has resigned. The resignation of Tracy is effective immediately.

Tracy was the fifth Manager in Rockies history, a position he held since being promoted from Bench Coach on May 29, 2009. Tracy originally joined the Rockies organization as Bench Coach prior to the 2009 season. Tracy led the Rockies to a 294-308 (.488) record in his three-plus seasons as the club’s Manager. Tracy was named the 2009 National League Manager of the Year after leading the Rockies to the 2009 National League Wild Card and a franchise-best 92-70 record.

“Jim Tracy is a man that has brought professionalism to the Rockies organization since 2009," said Bill Geivett, Rockies Sr. Vice President of Major League Operations. “However, Jim has decided that he no longer wants to move forward as Manager of the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club. We respect Jim’s decision, and we wish Jim and his family the best of luck as we begin our search for the right person to become the next manager of our organization."
