Leave a comment

Manager Bruce Bochy will serve as a special advisor to the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Bochy retired as a manager at the end of last season. The Giants set the new role for him upon his retirement, but the organization hadn’t announced it until Thursday.

Bochy has already met with members of the front office and coaching staff, and was involved in hiring the new manager, which turned out to be Gabe Kapler. Bochy is expected to be with the Giants during spring training as well.

Along with his new responsibilities with the Giants, Bochy will manage the French national baseball team as the nation attempts to qualify for the World Baseball Classic in 2021.
