Twins Blog: Staying In The Sport

Baseball has many players. I don’t mean just those on the field. There are coaches, hundreds of employees who work front office and dozens groom the field. There are also the people who work in the stadium, the vendors, reporters, TV crews, merchandise sellers, fans, reporters. You get the idea. One of those guys who’s “a part of the sport” is Gordy Jones. He’s worn many hats throughout his career: a newspaper writer, blogger, photographer and most recently, children’s author. “Baseball is my passion,” Jones said. “I love kids and I like to do as many things as I can. I’m having more fun now than I’ve ever had in my life.”
