Bruce Bochy won three World Series titles between 2010 and 2014 as manager for the San Francisco Giants. And Dave “Doc” Roberts is the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has led the team to win the National League West every year since he took over the position in 2015. Today, they will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic and the heated debate over racial justice have affected major league sports, specifically baseball.
Well it looks like the shortened 2020 baseball season will be more of a sprint than the usual 162 game marathon. It took a lot of contentious negotiations between players and owners to even get to this point and Dave Roberts saw parallels between the polarized debates in Washington. Both Roberts and Bochy are world-class managers but suddenly they need to manage a lot more than baseball, including a new discussion around racial justice that will require a lot of listening and understanding.
