Known as a retired racing sausage, it is often forgotten that I had my fair share of other sweet gigs, including one of my personal favorites, the ball attendant. From the text message I received the day before my first ever time at that position stating "Bring your glove," I was hooked. The stories and memories could last way more than 200 words, so rather than tell them all, I'll throw a few teasers your way and if you want to learn more, just let me know.
-My first ever game included a come from behind victory and a mammoth Prince Fielder shot against the rival Cardinals
-Playing catch with Hunter Pence is an adventure. He guns it and has an unorthodox release
-Certain outfielders tend to pout when they end the previous inning
-One particular outfielder in general has a "Rube Baker" complex
-George Kottaras nearly killed me (or at least my chance of having kids) with a line drive
-Harassing the attendant for a ball does not help your chances
-I loved pitching changes in cooler weather because I got to run and get the reliever's warmup jackets. It's the little things that count.
-Chicks dig ball attendants
P.S. - All of the above are true, except for maybe that last one.
