Watch: Theo Epstein Talks About Need For Diversity in Major League Baseball

Theo Epstein is a true leader in the baseball world and when he speaks people tend to listen. When he was asked on MLB Network about diversity in baseball, particularly in front offices, he didn’t sidestep the question.

He went on to mention multiple levels of baseball that clearly lack diversity within the ranks, including front office leadership, ownership circles, scouts, managers, and more. Epstein added that while his track record of hiring minorities is good by baseball standards, those same standards aren’t good enough and more work needs to be done to increase diversity across MLB.
