Description

At SABR 44 on August 2, 2014, in Houston, Texas, our From Playing Field to Front Office Panel discussed the unique experiences of three baseball lifers who all began their careers as major league players and moved into the executive realm. They also shared a few humorous Yogi Berra stories, too. The panel included: Dr. Bobby Brown, Eddie Robinson, Bob Watson, and moderator C. Paul Rogers III. Video produced by Brent Goucher. For more coverage of SABR 44, visit SABR.org/convention. Our panelists included Dr. Bobby Brown, a New York Yankees third baseman who played on five championship teams, retired at age 29 to become a cardiologist, and later served 10 years as American League president; Eddie Robinson, who spent more than six decades in professional baseball as a player, coach, scout, farm director, and general manager; Bob Watson, who spent 19 seasons in the big leagues and then served as GM of the Houston Astros and New York Yankees; and moderator C. Paul Rogers III, an author, professor of law at Southern Methodist University, and president of the Ernie Banks-Bobby Bragan SABR chapter in Dallas-Fort Worth.
