My job at the Ballpark

After months of hard and thankless work, Fitch Park looks great and baseball is finally here! The Cubs have been working out this past week and I've been able to meet a number of current and past players, as well as famous fans. Lee Smith showed me how to throw a few of his pitches that earned him a spot in the Hall of Fame. Eddie Vedder, lead singer of Pearl Jam, joined the end of Fantasy Camp and I was lucky enough to share a few minutes with him. Eddie wrote a great song about the Cubs and how "someday we'll go all the way!" - he signed my ball and vinyl album and I gave him my anti-Bush t-shirt. Hopefully he'll wear it at a show sometime...
Lots more fun to come during this spring training!
