Congratulations are due to Andrew Friedman and the Tampa Bay Rays, who last night beat Boston in game 7 of the American League Championship Series, and will start the World Series on Wednesday night.
Some of you may remember that Andrew was an Associate here at MidMark for several years until joining the Rays. After two years in player development, he became general manager(article about his background here).
Andrew is now the toast of the Major Leagues, and everyone wants to know a little bit about him, inlcuding his background. So, naturally, MidMark has been getting a little press, which is a strange thing.
According to the New York Times, we are "an obscure private equity firm in New Jersey." In another paper we were described as a firm which ruthlessly extracts profits by buying and breaking up companies.
Well, I suppose I am happy to remain obscure, as long as we're making profits!
Congratulations to Andrew. I'm definitely a fan, even though my heart still belongs to Baltimore.
