Mark Teixeira retired at the end of last baseball season and immediately found a home at ESPN. Still, not enduring the grind of a 162-game season has been an exciting opportunity for the former New York Yankees first baseman to explore other endeavors.

The Gold Glover now has more time to spend with his family, finally read up on what’s happening in the National League, and explore partnerships with youth baseball initiatives through the Little League World Series.

Teixeira spoke with us about taking in baseball outside the batter’s box, how he follows the league as a broadcaster, and what he thinks about where the league is headed with its efforts to make the game more appealing to fans used to taking pictures and not waiting days to see the results.
