Most of us have been involved in the game in some fashion, on top of being fans.
Some have played at pretty high levels.
Some have coached.
Some have been in broadcasting.
Some have done really cool things like GAC spending the 70s and 80s portraying Morgana the Kissing Bandit.
So what cool things have you been involved with?
Here are mine:
As a 15 year old I played on a 17-18 year old team that played the Canadian National Junior team for a week in Vancouver. We won the series. We also cheated. I played one inning, striking out the side, while walking the bases loaded. We cheated. We had ineligable players and the coach was a fraud. It was awesome.
My junior year of high school I got to sing the National Antham and Take Me Out to the Ballgame at a Braves/reds game in Atlanta. For take me out to the Ballgame I wore a Reds hat. In Atlanta. It was awesome.
As a senior in college I interned at WGST Radio in Atlanta. I got to tape interviews with Tom Glavine and Mark Lemke in the clubhouse after another Reds/braves game. I wore my Reds jersey as I wasn't supposed to be there that day. Tom Glavine yelled at me. It was awesome.
I've been mentioned on WLW back when Redszone took over the after game show. It was awesome.
Time for the rest of you posers to try to beat those. (Note, most of the above situations actually happened. Some of them may have been changed slightly for entertainment purposes)
