Snitker, who recently completed his 46th season in the Atlanta Braves organization, has been the club's manager since the 2016 season, initially serving under the interim tag. Snitker would eventually be named the Braves full-time manager at the conclusion of the 2016 season, where he has served since.

Under Snitker, the Braves have compiled a combined 542-451(one of only five managers in franchise history to reach 500 career wins) record across seven seasons, as well as having made a postseason appearance in five of the seven, which have come from 2018-22. The Braves also won their first World Series title since the 1995 season back in 2021, and have won the NL East for five consecutive seasons, which dates back to the 2018 campagn.

Speaking of the year 2018, Snitker has also finished top five in NL Manager of the Year voting in all five seasons since, with the Braves skipper even winning the award back in 2018. That season, Snitker would lead Atlanta to a 90-72 overall record, with the Braves eventually falling to the Dodgers in the NLDS.

This past season, Snitker led the Braves to their first 100-win season since the 2003 campaign, with Atlanta finishing this past year with a 101-61 overall record. Snitker also led Atlanta to an NLDS appearance this past season, with the club eventually falling to the eventual NL champion Philadelphia Phillies.

Now extended through the 2025 season, Snitker will continue to lead the Braves as one of the top teams in baseball as he chases his sixth consecutive NL East crown in 2023.
