Alex Cora to remain with Red Sox through 2024
- Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox have exercised the options to keep manager Alex Cora at the helm through the 2023 and 2024 seasons, the team confirmed on Monday.
“Alex’s leadership of our staff and our players was critical to all that we accomplished in 2021,” Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom said. “Along with the entire Red Sox front office, I am excited for many years of continued partnership as we work together to bring another World Series trophy to Fenway Park.”
The 46-year-old Cora has been in Boston for three seasons, leading the team to a franchise record 108 wins and a World Series title in 2018.
“I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to manage the Red Sox,” Cora said in a statement. “We experienced so many special moments as a team and as a city in 2021, but we still have unfinished business to take care of. I am excited about the current state of our organization and eager to continue my work with our front office, coaches, players, and everyone who makes this such a special place.”
Bloom is pleased that Cora will be staying with the Red Sox for two more seasons, saying that he is capable of both “leadership and partnership.”
“You’re seeking a leader, not just for your clubhouse, but for the entire organization, and a partner in our goal of bringing championship-caliber baseball to Fenway Park on an annual basis,” Bloom said. “And in Alex, we have both of those things.”
