In his first two seasons with the Rockies Black became the first manager to lead the club to back-to-back playoff appearances.

The 61 year old has been named a National League Manager of the Year finalist in each of his first two seasons.

In 2018 Black led the Rockies to a 91-72 record, marking the second most wins in franchise history. In his two seasons as a manager the Rockies have a 178-147 record, which is the best winning percentage among Rockies managers in franchise history.

The Rockies will begin the 2019 season on Thursday March 28th when they begin a four game series in Miami against the Marlins.
