Learn how 10 MLB General Managers got their job



As a Major League Baseball General Manager, this is your office but it’s not all fun and games"


Did you always want to play professional baseball but sadly it never happened?  What about being the General Manager of a team in Game 7 of the World Series?
Brian Clapp introduces you to ten Major League Baseball General Managers and describes how they got their careers started.


There was a time when the best way to become a General Manager in the Major Leagues was to play as long as you could and then take all the knowledge gathered from years on the road, travelling from minor league stadium to major league hotel and eventually become a scout. Time and organizational skill would then dictate how far your career would go.

Things have changed – sort of. For every Harvard educated General Manager like Jeff Bridich of the Colorado Rockies and Matthew Silverman of the Tampa Bay Rays, there are still veteran ball players like Dave Stewart [Diamondbacks] and Jerry Dipoto [Angels] escalating to the role of General Manager.



The key takeaways are:


Learn the various roles in a baseball office


Focus on your education


Playing experience helps but the game is changing
