CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Sporting News has named Reds General Manager Walt Jocketty as Major League Baseball's 'Executive of the Year.'

The Reds won the National League Central Division this season for the first time in 15 years. The team's 91 wins were the most for the club since 1999, and the Reds celebrated their first winning season in 10 years.

Jocketty was named General Manager in April of 2008.

"We had to teach everybody from the front office to the players that we can turn this around and be successful," Jocketty told Sporting News.
 
This is the third time Jocketty has received the honor. He also won in 2000 and 2004 while in St. Louis.
 
"We applaud Sporting News for recognizing the contributions of Walt and his staff to our 2010 championship team," said Reds President and CEO Bob Castellini. "He continues to improve our organization both on the fi eld and in the front office. We are proud that his work here is noticed throughout baseball."
