Dodgers Hire Dave Roberts As Manager

Dave Roberts

The Los Angeles Dodgers have hired Dave Roberts to replace Don Mattingly as the teams’ manager. Roberts, who is 43, spent three of his 10 big-league seasons playing for the Dodgers. Dave Roberts is the first minority manager in Dodgers history (his mother is Japanese and his father is African-American).

Multiple veterans on the team wanted Roberts to be their next manager. Although the Dodgers have decided on Dave Roberts and he has agreed to take the job, a baseball source said the two sides were still working out the final contract details as of Sunday night. Some sources expect Roberts to get a three-year deal with a fourth-year option.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN an introductory press conference will be held on Dec. 1.
