Our friends at Baseball Nation put up a hilarious feature over the weekend, ranking MLB managers' likely knowledge of the music festival Coachella, which took place over the past two weekends in California. In the past year and a half, Manny Acta has surprisingly shown quite a bit of personality, both with the press and on his personal Twitter account. It wouldn't absolutely shock me if he was familiar with the festival, and according to Batting Stance Guy's research, Acta is one of the likeliest managers to be up on the music scene. He has him ranked 5th on the list, writing:
5. Manny Acta. He's the surprise of the list but he tweeted about music during spring training and is 10 years younger than you think. He's the sneaky member of the Top 5.
