Brooks working to increase minorities baseball | MLB.com

Brooks is the epitome of baseball’s vision. Soon after he graduated from the University of Maryland in 1996, he received a three-month internship with the Braves. Now, following front-office stops as a personnel guru with the Braves after that internship, the Indians and the Pirates, this 43-year-old native of Orioles country (Glen Bernie, Md., which is outside of Baltimore) is entering his second year working in the Commissioner’s Office as the senior director of MLB’s front office and field staff diversity pipeline program.

To translate, Brooks is trying to get more minorities to understand they can have opportunities in baseball beyond just playing the sport, and he’s also seeking to help Major League franchises identify the growing number of candidates among minorities who are worthy of hiring.
