Entering his ninth season as manager, Rick returns for his 18th campaign with the Winnipeg Goldeyes organization. He spent his first three and a half years as a pitcher, followed by five and a half years as a pitching coach, before being named the third manager in franchise history on November 15, 2005.
Rick guided the Goldeyes to a 56-44 record last season, marking the third consecutive winning record for the club and seventh winning season in Rick's eight season as the helm.
Rick became the first manager in Goldeyes history to win the league's manager of the year award when the American Association awarded him that title in 2011 for leading the Fish to a 60-40 record and the North Division Championship in the team's first season in the league.
Rick resides in Walkersville, Md. with his wife Erika and children David, Chris, Rebekah, and Erik.
