Antonio Scott, general manager of the DC Grays, will be a guest on “The Dugout” a weekly baseball show on Sports Talk 570 (WSPZ-570 AM). The show is hosted by Thom Loverro and Tim Shovers, and will air on Saturday (April 19) from 7:00am-8:ooam and on Sunday (April 20) from 9:00am-10:00am.
The topic of the show this week is the state of African-American participation in baseball at all levels. Scott is an authority on the topic, as he is a former college baseball player for Howard University and now runs baseball operations for the Grays, one of the few summer college teams in the country that actively recruits African-American ballplayers. In his capacity as General Manager of the Grays, Scott recruits black ballplayers from colleges around the country – including many from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The DC Grays baseball team is a member of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League, one of the top wood-bat summer college leagues in the country.
Scott also oversees the Grays’ free baseball clinics for inner-city boys and girls, which the Grays run in conjunction with the Diamond Dream Foundation.
Thom Loverro, the co-host of the show, is a board member of DC Grays Baseball, the non-profit group the runs the DC Grays.
