Bill Geivett

Author Bill Geivett, M.Ed., with more than 28 years of experience in professional baseball as a player, scout and front office executive, takes the reader on a trip that is part steps to acquire that first baseball job, part personal insights and stories, and part mentorship in Scouting and Player Development.

"Bill Geivett brings his background in professional baseball to this book and explores not just everything that is needed to know to break into the industry, but also offers thought-provoking and often times humorous glimpses into the world of some well-known pro baseball players.....In fact, the interview tips and general life lessons in this book are not restricted to pro baseball or indeed any sports field, and can be applied equally well to any field to achieve career success. I really liked the interview section presented in this book, which proves that one not only needs the skills, but also a never-give-up, can-do attitude and a passion for the job." - Gisela Dixon review for Readers' Favorite.
