PLAYERS: Jim Tracy
TEAMS: Colorado Rockies
Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy has received what general manager Dan O'Dowd calls an ''indefinite'' contract extension. O'Dowd made the announcement during Tracy's media session following Monday afternoon's opening spring training workout. He says there was only a handshake - no formal paperwork or press release. Tracy's previous contract took him through this season, so he eventually must sign a new deal. The 56-year-old manager says he would like to one day retire with the Rockies. Tracy was called into a meeting last week with front office members at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Tracy is 230-210 since taking over as manager in late May 2009, when he won NL Manager of the Year honors after leading Colorado to a 74-42 record and the NL wild card.
