Syracuse Mets Announce Brian Schneider as Manager for 2020 Season

The Syracuse Mets are excited to reveal that former New York Mets catcher Brian Schneider will lead the Syracuse Mets as the team’s manager for the 2020 season. Schneider replaces last season’s Syracuse Mets Manager Tony DeFrancesco. DeFrancesco managed Syracuse for one season before being named the first-base coach for the New York Mets.


Schneider comes to Syracuse and the New York Mets’ organization after spending the last six years as a coach in the Miami Marlins’ system. The Florida native managed the Jupiter Hammerheads, the Advanced-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins, in 2014 and 2015 before becoming the catching coach on the major league staff for the Marlins from 2016-2019 alongside Marlins manager Don Mattingly.
