In the Pittsburgh Pirate Organization, managers are asked to build players capable of winning future championships in Pittsburgh through organizationally identified best practices and personal creativity and innovation. This job has multiple facets that are equally important and challenging to balance. Our organization identifies high EQ leaders with growth mindsets that seek challenges and set the example.
