Quote from: LWOS_Marilee on December 06, 2020, 08:16:25 amI had the opportunity to meet a few minor league GMs when I went to the winter meetings a few years ago. Great experience. But anyway, those guys talked about how they aren't traditional GMs as you think of them in the majors. They organize the promotions, they work in the office, they handle fan service and community outreach. Basically they do everything. And just about every one of them talked about how much they loved it. So I think that kind of job would be fun but for me, it's always been to be in the booth. I pretty much wanted to be a sports caster as soon as I went to college and while my path has gone a different way, being a commentator for MLB would def rank up there as my dream job in baseball. Either that or being the Phillie Phanatic lol.

There were few things greater than being at the baseball stadium during the summer. However, I know firsthand that those folks who helped with all of those duties at the minor league level were working from 8am-1am most game days.

Wasn't as fun as I thought, but it was still cool being at the ballpark every day. I think it would be cool to work in baseball development and eventually give input/make decisions on roster construction
