Bruce Douglas Bochy is the manager of the San Francisco Giants. Prior to joining the Giants, Bochy had been the manager of the San Diego Padres for twelve seasons.
He has participated in all five postseason appearances in Padres history, as a backup catcher in 1984 and as their manager in 1996, 1998, 2005, and 2006. In 1998, he led the Padres to their first National League pennant in 14 years, where they lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series.
He reached the World Series for a second time in 2010, this time in a winning effort, and brought the first ever World Series Championship home to the city of San Francisco and the first for the franchise since 1954. He reached the World Series for the third time in 2012, also with the Giants. The Giants won the 2012 World Series in the 10th inning 4-3 over the Detroit Tigers in a 4 game sweep.
Bochy is both the first foreign-born manager to reach the World Series (1998) and the first European-born manager to win the World Series (2010).
