Dana Brown, 55, has been named the new general manager of the World Series
champions Houston Astros.

Brown was hired by the Astros last week. He spent the last four seasons as the vice
president of scouting for the Atlanta Braves.

“I’m coming to a winning team and a big part of what I want to do is sustain the
winning long term,” Brown said in a statement. “We want to continue to build,
continue to sign good players, continue to develop players and continue the
winning success.”


Brown is the only Black general manager in the majors. He and Astros manager
Dusty Baker form the second pairing of a Black manager and general manager in
MLB history. The first was general manager Ken Williams and manager Jerry
Manuel with the White Sox.
