Ron Washington, 71, returns to LA Angels after 10 years as manager

Ron Washington, the 71-year-old "veteran" manager of the Los Angeles Angels, will return to the managerial ranks after a 10-year absence.

Local media, including, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on the 9th (Korean time) that the Los Angeles Angels have appointed Washington as their 23rd manager.

Earlier, the Angels confirmed the parting of ways with Phil Nevin, leaving the managerial position vacant. After conducting interviews, the Angels selected the experienced Washington coach.

After retiring from the game, Washington worked in coaching before being named manager of the Texas Rangers in 2007, a position he held until 2014. During this time, he led Texas to back-to-back World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011, but finished as runner-up both times.

He stepped down during the 2014 season after being embroiled in a scandal involving sexual misconduct by Izza. Washington admitted his wrongdoing and apologized.

After compiling a 664-611 record in eight seasons in Texas, Washington returned to the field as the Oakland Athletics' first base coach, and has been with the Atlanta Braves since 2017.

With Washington's experience, the Angels are looking to make a change.

However, the American League West is not an easy division for the Angels to navigate, as it is home to the defending World Series champion Texas, as well as the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners.

The team's top star, Shohei Ohtani, is also a free agent and is likely to leave. 19guide03
