Rabbit Maranville Chapter meeting recap – 4/22/2019

From Howard Herman at the Berkshire Eagle on April 23, 2019:

Dan Duquette says not having a team to work for this baseball season has been relaxing. But the Dalton native, whose tenure as the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Baltimore Orioles ended at the end of the 2018 season, said that he’s looking forward to another chance.

“I’m enjoying my time with my family, doing some consulting, and looking for my next opportunity in MLB,” Duquette said. “It’s 24-7, and I’m enjoying the respite spending time with my family.”

Duquette, 60, spoke to the Walter “Rabbit” Maranville Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research on Monday night. The chapter invited Duquette to be interviewed by Red Sox historian, and former Boston Globe baseball writer, Gordon Edes. The session was held in the lower level of the Campus Center at Western New England University. The meeting was so successful, it had to be moved into a larger area to accommodate baseball fans who came to hear Duquette tell stories about his time in baseball.

But during a break in the presentation, he was asked about baseball, and whether he felt he was done.

“Absolutely,” he said, when asked if he wanted to get back in the game. “I’m confident that I’ll find another opportunity.

“A lot of this is timing. We’ve been able to field some competitive teams over the years, and I’m confident I’ll get another opportunity.”
