Blacks took over the general manager and manager positions of the Houston Astros, the winning team of the MLB (American Professional Baseball) World Series last year. The Astros appointed Dana Brown (56), former vice president of scouting for the Atlanta Braves, as their new general manager on the 26th (local time). Brown, who is black, will lead the team with coach Dusty Baker, who is also black. It is the second time since the Chicago White Sox from 2001 to 2003 that both the general manager and manager of an MLB team are black. 슬롯사이트 Among the currently active MLB general managers, Brown is the only black.
Brown, a former college baseball player, is a scouting expert who has been active in the major leagues for over 30 years, starting with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1994. He went through the Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays, and served as Vice President of the Braves for four years from 2019 to last year. Michael Harris II and Spencer Strider, who finished first and second in the National League Rookie of the Year voting last season, debuted for the Braves led by Brown.
American media Forbes said, “Brown did not get the general manager position because of his skin color. He evaluates his talent and has excellent people skills.” Astros owner Jim Crane said, “Brown knows everything about baseball,” and said, “He’s the perfect fit for us.”
“The Astros are a winning team,” Brown said at his inaugural press conference. We will figure out what factors have led the team to success and continue to do so for a long time.”
