PBI’s Conversations With:

PBI's Doug Cinnella and Dave Trautwein along with Clint Hurdle and Sam Perlozzo
When PBI founder and president Doug Cinnella’s professional playing career came to an end, he knew that he wanted to find a way to both stay involved in the game and pass on his passion for baseball to children, and in the process teach them strong fundamentals about not only baseball, but life too.

In this latest installment of “PBI’s Conversations With:” the tables get turned a bit. Doug recently was interviewed by Joe Connolly of The Wall Street Journal for the Small Business Report which is heard weekdays at 1:23 PM and 5:23 PM on WCBS Newsradio 880.

In this first segment, Doug talks about getting PBI out in front of people on a town-by-town basis. “How you win and how you lose in Little League sets the tone for life.”

Baseball imitates life in so many ways. Doug talks about getting out of the dugout (or office) to keep a handle on how your business is running.

You HAVE to get out of your office…or in PBI’s case…the dugout

Running a business like PBI means being a coach, psychologist, and business owner all at the same time.

It goes beyond just playing the game – there’s a mental side of the equation for players and parents
