Breaking News: Beckmann To Philadelphia
Phillies Fill General Manager Vacancy
April 26, 2018
A day after announcing that long-time General Manager John Comey was leaving the organization, the Philadelphia Phillies have announced that Jack Beckmann has agreed to a deal to take over the position.
Beckmann had previously spent three seasons in Milwaukee, having won the NL Central twice.
Phillies owner David Montgomery Jr. said of Beckmann, “He’s a proven winner. His success in Milwaukee was easy to see. The National League is heavily competitive and difficult, we need a General Manager who will be aggressive in helping return the Phillies to the top of the division.”
