All good things must come to an end. And for San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy, this season will be his last in the clubhouse.
The team took to Twitter Monday to announce that the 63-year-old Bochy will be retiring following the 2019 MLB campaign.
This year will be Bochy's 13th with the Giants. The team is 975-962 under his leadership (.502), with three World Series titles from 2010-14.
His overall record is below .500 (1,926-1,944), but he is still regarded as a great manager with his three World Series rings.. Unfortunately for Bochy, his overall record will likely dip even further as many anticipate the Giants will struggle once again this season.

Bochy has worked 24 consecutive seasons as a big-league manager, spending his first 12 seasons with the Padres. In San Diego, Bochy won four NL West titles and took the team to the World Series in 1998, losing to the Yankees.
