Dombrowski a chairman on MLB diversity initiative

By Jason Beck / MLB.com | 4/10/2013 4:24 P.M. ET

DETROIT -- Tigers CEO, president and general manager Dave Dombrowski has been named as a chairman on Major League Baseball's new On-Field Diversity Task Force, announced Wednesday "to address the talent pipeline that impacts the representation and development of diverse players and on-field personnel in Major League Baseball, particularly African-Americans," according to a press release.

Dombrowski has become an influential figure in MLB over the years. He has represented the Tigers at MLB Owners Meetings regularly, and he was recognized at the General Managers Meetings last fall with the John Schuerholz Award for 25 years as a GM.

Others on the 18-person committee include Tampa Bay Rays owner Stuart Sternberg, who chairs MLB's Diversity Oversight Committee, Cleveland Indians owner Larry Dolan and White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams.

Also on the committee is former Tigers first baseman Tony Clark, now the director of player services for the MLB Players Association.
