Faces of the winter meetings: Adam Gladstone

Adam Gladstone has worn a lot of baseball caps. He oversaw the York Revolution and some other clubs in the independent Atlantic League and also was Buck Showalter's first video replay monitor. Now, he's the assistant general manager of Israel's team in the World Baseball Classic.

Here's how that came about in his own words:

"Back in 2012, which was the first time the WBC invited Israel to participate, Peter Kurz, who is the president of the Israel Association of Baseball and I got together. He's based out of Israel and I'm here in the states and I felt with my experience in different aspects of the game, it was an opportunity to give back to Israel.
