THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING DAN O’DOWD

Dan O’Dowd is a former longtime MLB executive who is currently an analyst with MLB Network. He began his front office baseball career with the Baltimore Orioles in 1983, before joining Cleveland in 1988 as the vice president of baseball operations and assistant general manager. In 1999, he joined the Colorado Rockies as their general manager and executive vice president. He led them to two postseason appearances and a National League championship in 2007.

O’Dowd joined MLB Network in February 2015 after serving as a guest analyst during MLB Network’s 2014 winter meetings coverage in San Diego. He is currently featured on the Emmy Award-winning flagship studio show “MLB Tonight.”

Today on the podcast, we talk to O’Dowd about his broadcasting role with MLB Network, his introduction to Christianity, growing from failures, and why it took him until his 50s to surrender his life to Christ.
