George Tsamis has spent 18 years as the St. Paul Saints manager. But with the Twins coming aboard as the Triple-A affiliate, they will bring in their own skipper.

We talked to George about the emotions he's experiencing, his great run with one franchise, what's next, and more.

Tsamis led the Saints to two championships, the latest in 2019; helped them transition from Midway Stadium to the new CHS Field; won more than 1,000 games along the way; helped construct the yearly rosters; and was one heck of a batting practice pitcher.

He noted that he's open to continuing to manage elsewhere, or join a team as pitching coach. He remains tight with Saints ownership, so a non-field position could always develop too.
