Phillies retain Dombrowski through 2027

The manager comes from taking the Phillies to the postseason for the first time since 2011

The Phillies have given their president of basketball operations, Dave Dombrowski, a contract extension and will keep him with the club through at least the 2027 season.

Dombrowski, in his second year with the organization, is coming off leading the Phillies to the postseason for the first time since 2011, ending an 11-year playoff drought. In addition, the club won the eighth National League pennant in franchise history.

In the history of the game, Dombrowski is the only head of baseball operations to have led four different teams to the World Series.

“We are extremely pleased that Dave has agreed to continue leading our baseball operations department through the 2027 season,” manager John Middleton stated.

“His knowledge of the game and eye for talent led us to the National League pennant. I firmly believe that, under his command, we will reach the ultimate goal, ”he added.

In his 33 years as president or general manager, Dombrowski's teams have qualified for the postseason 10 times, winning seven division titles, five pennants and two World Series.

In his last 11 years, his clubs have gone 982-768 (.561) with eight playoffs, three pennants and a Fall Classic crown.
