You saw Jessica Quiroli's introductory post yesterday. I asked our other Minor League Ball staff members for some background information about likes and dislikes as part of our plans for 2014. Lee Warren is still in the hospital and has other things on his mind right now, but Matt Garrioch and Nick Melotte weighed in. Here's Matt's response. Nick will follow shortly.
Get to know Matt Garrioch:
I was born in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota and now live in New Ulm, Minnesota. I've worked in many communities in southern and central Minnesota, so it's impossible not to call the Twins my favorite team. I have always enjoyed watching Cubs games on WGN, especially when I was younger, so I have some attachment there as well. I liked the A's and Astros as I was growing up as well but I am more of a fan of the game as a whole now.
I enjoy all the different aspects of the game from the business and financial side to the human element, developing players. I've used baseball and the things I've learned from studying it to improve my life as a whole. It's amazing how many lessons you can learn from scenarios in baseball.
