The Tampa Bay Rays owe much of their success to the calming influence and confidence of manager Joe Maddon, and he was rewarded Tuesday with a three-year contract extension, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.
Maddon's contract was set to end after this season, and an extension had been discussed during the offseason.
The popular manager was the 2011 American League Manager of the Year, when his team roared back from a nine-game deficit in September to snatch a playoff spot from the Boston Red Sox.
The Rays have made the postseason three times in the past four years and went to the World Series 2008.
