What’s Rob Reading?

Doug Glanville (ESPN.com)

“MLB needs more Black managers. Here’s why it won’t be me right now.”
By Doug Glanville, ESPN.com

“I check all of the boxes. I played nine seasons in the big leagues with the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. I have experience as an executive subcommittee member in the Major League Baseball Players Association and am well-versed in baseball governance. I have an Ivy League degree at a time when that means a lot for executive opportunity in baseball. I’ve been a candidate before, and I believe I have the voice and drive to be an excellent major league manager. But I can’t be your candidate right now. That truth has a lot to do with another box I check: Black father.”
