HOUSTON (AP) — No matter how this year’s World Series ends, a Snitker will get a championship ring. This edition of the Fall Classic features Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker going against his son, Houston Astros co-hitting coach Troy Snitker. They took turns praising each other Monday, a day before Game 1 at Minute Maid Park in Houston. But once the action starts, 66-year-old Brian will be rooting for his club, trying to beat 32-year-old Troy’s club. But they both agreed that the star of the family this week is Ronnie Snitker — she is Brian’s wife and Troy’s mom.
