The Orioles today announced that Dave Trembley's contract as manager has been extended through the 2008 season, with a club option for 2009.

Orioles President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail made the announcement at a news conference this afternoon in the Warehouse at Camden Yards.

The Orioles have a 29-25 record under Trembley, who began the season as Orioles bullpen coach before being named interim manager on June 18, replacing Sam Perlozzo. The interim title was removed and he was named manager for the 2007 season on July 31.

Trembley spent 22 years in professional baseball, including 20 years as a Minor League manager, before earning his first major league appointment as bullpen coach this year. The 55-year-old native of Carthage, NY, spent much of the first two months of the season working as bench coach in the absence of Tom Trebelhorn, who was tending to his wife's illness. In addition, Trembley served as the club's field coordinator, setting up pre-game workouts and batting practice schedules in Spring Training and during the regular season.

This is Trembley's fifth season in the Orioles organization. He spent the 2003-04 seasons as manager at AA Bowie before going to AAA Ottawa for the 2005-06 seasons, with an overall record of 285-284 in four seasons. In his first year with the Baysox, he was named winner of the Cal Ripken Sr. Player Development Award. Trembley compiled a 1369-1413 record as Minor League manager, winning two league titles and earning Manager of the Year awards in three leagues. In 1987, Baseball America named him Manager of the Year for all of Minor League baseball, and in 2001 that publication selected him as one of the minor's top five managers of the previous 20 years.

He began his professional career as a scout for the Chicago Cubs in 1984 after teaching and coaching in high school for three years and serving as a community college coach for five years, both in the Los Angeles area. He served as a scout and coach in 1985 before beginning his Minor League managing career with the independent Kinston team in the Carolina League in 1986 and has since managed in the Cubs, Pirates and Padres farm systems, in addition to the Orioles. He also spent a year as director of Pittsburgh's Minor League and Spring Training complex in Bradenton, FL.
