MLB helpless in  getting teams to hire minority managers

Major League Baseball, which  has not hired a single person  of colour for any of the seven  GM or head of baseball  operations roles or any of  the six managing positions,

In a provision put in place in  1999 by previous  Commissioner Bud Selig,  the organisation must furnish  a list of minority candidates  it is evaluating.

MLB Commissioner Rob  Manfred stated, "We have  only recently changed aspects  of the Selig rule to attempt to make it more effective.

We continue to put a lot of  effort into finding prospects to submit to the clubs so they  have a diverse selection  to choose from.

"But in the end, these are  decisions made by each  individual club. People will  act in ways they believe will  place them in the very best position to compete,

When you're sitting in New  York, it's really difficult to  influence those decisions  and to second-guess  them. It's accurate.

"All we can do is make every  effort to ensure that the  prospects we are offering  to clubs are competent.

The only team without a managerial opening is the  Chicago White Sox, and that position's announcement is anticipated to come soon  after the World Series is over.

Similar to the NFL and other leagues, MLB has spoken  about ways to maybe  compensate teams who  hire minorities for manager  or front office roles.
