As we begin 2015, here at tbonesbaseball.com we thought it would be fun to get New Year’s wishes from front-office personnel and baseball staff. So, starting with the baseball staff, we asked: What do you wish for in 2015?
“1. We wish for first pitch strikes and put away pitches.
2. RBIs and big, timely hitting.
3. Home-field dominance at “Fun…Well Done.”
4. Three champagne celebrations and victory cigars.
But really the most important wish
5. For God’s blessings and health to all our family and friends in 2015.”
John Massarelli, Manager
“I wish for good health for my family and one more run than the opposing team all summer.”
Bill Sobbe, Pitching Coach
“First of all, I wish for personal and family good health and prosperity. I also wish for a successful first year on the Jackson County Legislature, and successful seasons by the Royals and the T-Bones.”
Frank White, T-Bones Coach (and Royals Hall of Famer)
“To be sitting on a beach, earning 20 percent.”
Rylan Brody, Director of Stadium Operations (and “Diehard” fan, evidently)
“Good health, more happiness and more fun.”
Crystal Collins, Director of Ticket Sales
“Good health for my family and friends, focus to read through the entire Bible, and greater Kansas City’s greatest summer of baseball (of course that means a league championship for the T-Bones and a World Series title for the Royals).”
Matt Fulks, Sr. Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations
“-At least one ski trip to Colorado.
-A clean bill of health for my friends and loved ones.
-A playoff berth for the T-Bones.
-A vacation outside of the United States (I’ve never left the country).”
Stephen Hardwick, Assistant Director of Group Sales
“At least a Final Four appearance from the Jayhawks and at least three Big 12 wins from the hapless Jayhawk football team. This summer I also wish for a playoff bid for the T-Bones and a Kansas Turnpike series sweep against the Wichita Wingnuts.”
Connor Terry, Account Executive
