 Hinch, 43, guided the Astros to a 101-61 record and to their first World Series Championship in franchise history, in what was his third season with the club. In his three seasons on the job, Hinch has posted a 271-215 regular season record, two playoff appearances and a 14-9 postseason record, with those 14 wins representing the most by an Astros manager in postseason history. Following this season, Hinch earned the Esurance MLB’s Best Manager Award, which took into account the 2017 regular season and postseason. He was also named a finalist for the BBWAA AL Manager of the Year Award, for which he finished third in the voting.

 Brown is entering his second season as Astros Community Outreach Executive, and 32nd season with the organization. Brown was named the Astros primary TV play-by-play broadcaster in 1987, where he remained for 30 seasons until the conclusion of the 2016 campaign.  He called several important moments in franchise history, including seven postseason appearances, Jeff Bagwell’s 400th career homer in 2003 and Craig Biggio’s 3,000th career hit in 2007.
