Mark Scialabba, Assistant General Manager, Player Development for the Washington Nationals, will be the featured speaker during a webinar presentation for the Jan. 20 Alexandria Sportsman’s Club meeting.
Scialabba, entering his 15th season with Washington, was promoted to his current role in November of 2019 after serving the previous six years as Washington’s Director of Player Development. In this new position, Scialabba’s responsibilities include the Major League operation assisting Mike Rizzo, the front office and Major League staff.
He continues to work in conjunction with Doug Harris overseeing all aspects of the player development system, including player plans, player personnel decisions, analytics, contract negotiations, budgets, Dominican Academy operations and medical/training programs.
