Jocketty Staying In Cincy

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the club through 2014.

Jocketty joined the organization in January 2008 and was named general manager months later, helping assemble the 2010 Cincinnati team that won the franchise’s first division title in 15 years. His contract was due to expire at the end of this season.

Jocketty says the Reds “still have a long way to go.”

The 60-year-old executive was general manager in St. Louis from 1995-2007. His Cardinals teams advanced to two World Series, winning the 2006 title.

The Reds announced the deal before their game against the Pirates on Friday night.
