General managers answer the same questions every day.
Questions about players, questions about the team and, of course, questions about the future.
But every once in a while, a general manager gets the opportunity to talk about himself. After all, they're people too, aren't they?
In today's inaugural video blog with Mike Rizzo, we found out a little about the Nationals general manager. Sure, he's a native of Chicago (Chicagoin? Chicagite?) with strong Italian roots, but beyond the office desk and always-active BlackBerry, Rizzo is a baseball man at heart.
Baseball has always been in Rizzo's life in some capacity, whether as a minor league player or currently in his role in the Nats front office.
In this session, Rizzo talks about where it all started, back home with his baseball-loving father. Be sure to check out the next installment where we'll learn even more about Rizzo's path to the man behind the Nationals.
