It's weird to think about MLB executives doing anything other than MLB-executive-ing. I can't think of Bud Selig cutting timber, for example. But a story in the Washington Post introduces us to Bill Bordley, the league's new chief of security, who pitched for the Giants before joining the Secret Service, where he worked for 20 years. Yes, that Secret Service.
Bordley had only worked the MLB gig for three and a half weeks when Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was kidnapped in Venezuela. But Bordley had embassy contacts he could call. Embassy contacts! It makes the place seem professional.
