In addition to managing the South Carolina-based holding company RLB Squared, LLC, Geoff Block is a member of the Hilton Head Chamber of Commerce and a supporter of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. Outside of his professional and philanthropic pursuits, Geoff Block follows the New York Yankees.

The Yankees have been plagued with injuries through the first month of the 2019 season. Starting first baseman, Greg Bird, is the latest to miss an extended amount of time due to injury, as it was announced in mid-April that he would miss at least one month as a result of plantar fasciitis. As a result, New York signed free agent first baseman Logan Morrison. Expected to provide organizational depth, Morrison will earn $1 million if he plays at the big league level this season. In the meantime, he has reported to extended Spring Training.

A 31-year-old native of Kansas City, Missouri, Morrison is only two seasons removed from a career-best year in which he hit 38 home runs and recorded 85 runs batted in (RBI) with the Tampa Bay Rays. He spent last season with the Minnesota Twins and had 15 home runs and 39 RBI through 95 regular-season games. Throughout 959 career games, Morrison boasts a .239 batting average to go along with 137 home runs and 421 RBI.
