This article reports that Michael Weiner is the likely successor to Donald Fehr as Executive Director of the Major League Baseball Player’s Association.  If selected, Weiner will have a chance to spar with fellow Ephs Hal Steinbrenner ’91 and Bob Nutting ’84.

The common theme in that article: Weiner’s intellect.  In fact, the article could serve as a thesaurus for intelligence: “sharp,” “very bright,” “intelligent,” “equipped,” and “intellectual” are all used to describe Weiner.  At the same time, he is described by a current MLB player as a “very cool guy.”  Sounds like a lot of Ephs I know …

Note: I have updated this post with a photo and link to today’s illuminating New York Times feature.
