MLB Managers Have A Diversity Problem

MLB managers have a diversity problem.
Right now, only two of baseball's 30 managers are racial or ethnic minorities: the Nationals' Dusty Baker and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Dave Roberts, who was named the first minority manager in the club's history this past November.
"I don't get too outside of doing my job, as a teacher and as a coach, but when I think about the magnitude, then it gets a little overwhelming, to be honest," Roberts said in an interview with Fox Sports San Diego.
