FORT MYERS– Minnesota Twins spring training workers John McConaughey, Ed Odland and Mike McMillen all have one thing in common; they love baseball.
If you’ve ever been to Hammond Stadium, you’ve seen them. The men and women scattered around Century Link Sports Complex donning those baby blue polos and greeting baseball fans with smiles.
McConaughey has worked for the Twins for nine years, while Odland and McMillen are first timers.
“It’s my first year, I love baseball,” said McMillen. “Why don’t you come down and see if I can get a job and by-golly I got a job and I love it!”
Most of the workers are snowbirds, they will head back to the Midwest after the final spring training game this Saturday, but there’s no question we will see them ready for round two next year.
