Thanks, I've looked up current MLB GM's and yes they are typically very intelligent people. But, are you also saying that other front office positions are only open to or typically filled with Ivy league brainiacs as well and not guys who have bounced around in an organization for a few years or scouts that worked their way up? And as far as an agent goes, I know about the law degree, that didn't answer my question, and I didn't really specify what I was getting at, I meant to be a successful agent would it help to have playing background? It did for Scott Boras.
Can anyone else chime in?
