Braves name Hart president of baseball operations
Posted: October 23, 2014

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have named John Hart as president of baseball operations.

Hart was hired as interim general manager on Sept. 22 and will also continue to serve in that role. It's unclear if Hart's new title means the team no longer will seek a full-time replacement for Frank Wren, the former general manager. Wren was fired last month following a disappointing finish this season.

Team president John Schuerholz announced Thursday the 66-year-old Hart has agreed to a three-year contract that will continue through the team's first season at its new stadium in Cobb County.

Hart, the former general manager for the Rangers and Indians, joined the Braves last year as a senior adviser.
