Brian Gerald Snitker who is born on October 17, 1955, is the coach of the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB). Snitker has worked with the Braves in various capacities since 1977 when he played in their minor league system. In 2016, he was appointed as their manager.



Richard F. Snitker and Catherine (Collins) Snitker were both born in Decatur, Illinois. He attended Macon High School in Macon, Illinois, and was a member of the 1971 baseball team as a right fielder. Chris Ballard’s book One Shot at Forever: A Small Town, an Unlikely Coach, and a Magical Baseball Season chronicled the team’s unexpected run to the state championship tournament in 2012.

Snitker also played American Legion Baseball as a kid, which he says “gave me the platform to be seen since there are usually scouts at American Legion games,” according to a 2018 interview. It had a significant role in my development as a player and in assisting me in gaining a competitive advantage.



Snitker led the Braves’ third-base coaching staff from 2007 through 2013. On October 3, 2006, he was named to the role, succeeding Fredi González, who had left to become manager of the Florida Marlins. Following Bobby Cox’s retirement, González was named manager of the Braves for the 2011 season. Snitker was retained as third-base coach.

Snitker took over as manager of the Braves Triple-A affiliate on October 14, 2013. The Gwinnett Braves are a professional baseball team based in Georgia.
