Having just returned from camp in Jupiter, Florida, Cardinals Director of Player Development Bruce Manno shares his thoughts on the league, its players and the important role it serves in the developmental process.
After listening to this detailed audio interview, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn about the depth and breadth of preparation that goes into this phase of player development.
Manno joined the Cardinals organization at the end of the 2001 season and assumed his current role of Director of Player Development at that time. Previously, he was Assistant to the General Manager for the Baltimore Orioles and before that, Manno spent fifteen years building the Milwaukee Brewers farm system into one of the most recognized in all of baseball.
