Astros To Co-Host Second Annual MLB Diversity Business Summit
MLB has selected the Astros to co-host the league's second annual MLB Diversity Business Summit on June 19 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. Launched last year in Chicago in partnership with the White Sox, the Diversity Business Summit represents part of MLB's effort to attract more minority and female employees and vendors. Last year's summit drew more than 800 registrants, with representation from all 30 MLB clubs, MLBAM, MLB Network and 10 minor league clubs. Commissioner Bud Selig will again keynote the event.
