Pirates extend manager Hurdle, GM Huntington
PITTSBURGH — The architect of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ renaissance and the man who helped guide the team to three straight playoff berths are sticking around.
The Pirates announced Tuesday they have extended the contracts for general manager Neal Huntington and manager Clint Hurdle through the 2021 season.
Both have played integral parts in Pittsburgh’s emergence from 20 consecutive losing seasons. The Pirates reached the postseason in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
