What Is It Like To Be A Major League Player? What Is It Like To Be In Charge Of Those Players?
I happen to personally know a former Major League Pitcher who pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers, and one of the most intriguing things (of many) that I heard him talk about was the subject of how team travel works. In the book, Bill offered some great information about team travel too. Let’s face it, as a Brewer fan how much time do you spend thinking about what the Director of Team Travel Dan Larrea has to go through as he organizes each trip? You would not believe all the stuff that goes into planning a typical road trip! This section was a fascinating read.
In addition to the travel, Bill does divulge some info on what it is like to be a Milwaukee Brewers equipment manager. Can you imagine being in charge of a group of 25 Major Leaguers PLUS the coaches and others? Bill explains how Tony Migliaccio has been doing a whale of a job since he first started working for the Crew way back in 1978. The section on the operations of a Major League Clubhouse is well done.
