The Oakland A's have reached long-term agreements with Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Billy Beane, General Manager David Forst and Manager Bob Melvin, the club announced today.
"I'm proud of the tremendous success of our team under the leadership of Billy, David and Bob and am excited to have that continue for years to come," said Oakland A's Managing General Partner John Fisher.
Beane was elevated to his current post as Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations on Oct. 5, 2015 after serving 18 seasons as General Manager. Under his watch, the A's have compiled a 1793-1607 (.527) record over the last 21 years, which is the fourth-best record in the American League and seventh best in all of baseball during that time frame.
Forst will be entering his 20th season in the Athletics organization and his fourth as General Manager after being appointed to the position on Oct. 5, 2015. The A's have made nine postseason appearances since he joined the organization in 2000, including four times in the last seven seasons.
Melvin led the A's to the fourth best record in the Majors (97-65) and a postseason berth this season.
