EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Zack Minasian

Today I sat down with Zack Minasian, Coordinator of Pro Scouting/Manager of Minor League Personnel with the Milwaukee Brewers.  He is a good friend of mine and even though he works for the enemy, he offers some great insight on his unique path to where he is.  He comments on how he got started, his journey and also provides some great tips for those looking to get involved in baseball.  Click below to hear his entire interview.
