Hard Work for America’s Pastime

For some interesting reading about some of the hard work in baseball–from people who are not players–behind the scenes and in the locker rooms, Mike F. has sent me an excellent article by Ed Price of The Star-Ledger, which you can access at this URL:

There is much in here that amazes me–the long hours, the attention to detail (for example, knowing which player stayed in what locker, every series and every year), the constant work during games to prepare players and teams on getaway days/nights, the access to players, the tedious cleaning work, and much more. These people don’t get paid enough. Oddly enough, as I watched an interview of Kobe Bryant before Game 1 in Boston, I was wondering who supplied name plates for them on the road.

Great article, and many thanks to Mike for sending it along to me.
