Entering his eighth season as manager, Rick returns for his 17th 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 an American Association Championship last season in Winnipeg's second season in the league since making the move from the Northern League. The Goldeyes have six playoff berths in seven seasons under Rick's watch and have compiled a record of 371-311, good for a .544 winning percentage.
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.
