#3: The Employees Who Aren’t Playing Ball

The Detroit Tigers would not be where they are without the employees who do not play ball. The concessions stand volunteers and employees, the bathroom attendants, the grounds crew, the security detail, and the ushers are all a part of this great organization.

They show up to every home game and they make sure that the fans are able to enjoy themselves. They make sure the game goes off without a hitch. And, they do all of this with smiles on their faces. The team that keeps the Tigers games running smoothly does it all in the rain, snow, and summer heat. And, many of the men and women who work behind the scenes have been doing it for several decades. They have great stories to tell (which is something else to be thankful for).
