Taking over one of the worst teams in baseball in 2012, Walt Weiss is hired to replace Jim Tracy as manager of the Colorado Rockies.
The team made the announcement late Wednesday night after owner Dick Monfort and top officials deliberated at the general managers' meetings - held at a hotel Monfort owns.
Weiss is the 1988 American League Rookie of the Year. He takes over an injury-plagued team that finished in last-place in the NL West.
