On the U.S. Independence Day, we fittingly turn to baseball and our first conversation with Asheville Tourists manager Nate Shaver. We talk about his path from having aspirations on the field to his current aspirations in the dugout. He details the day-to-day role of managers at his level, what personnel directors with the Houston Astros dictate from above and how he and his coaching colleagues strive to support their players in ways that aren’t necessarily reflected in their stats. Also, Shaver is likely among an elite few in pro baseball: Managers with a PhD.
