After a history winning season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Clint Hurdle deserving won the Manager of the year. Clinton joined the Pirates in 2010 and made a promise to the city of Pittsburgh and his team that within 2 years he would end the losing streak and he did just that.
In a TV interview Hurdle said, “Players play, and they took ownership of the clubhouse, they took ownership of the field. All I tried to do every day was, yes, be positive, and it is challenging to do that. But I needed to model behavior that I wanted them to emulate and take on. I believe that happened throughout the year.”
The Pirates team also responded to him well as they shared that he stayed positive and kept a positive atmosphere.
So, congratulations to Hurdle of winning manager of the year and good luck to another winning season in 2014.
