Wags Wednesday!


To prepare for the Regional Tournament games Wags starts off by making Gatorade for the players. He and Kevin Weinberg often do this task together. Wags likes to joke and refer to Weinberg as the “Master Mixer”. The two also fill coolers with ice, water and rags for the players and place them in each dugout; the cold rags keep the kids cool during the games on hot days.
 
Wags made a point to say that all volunteers’ jobs are important. All the tasks come together to keep the Regional Tournament running smoothly. Wags stated, “All of it has to be done”.
 
When I asked Wags some of his pet peeves, he paused a minute before answering. A big one that came to his mind was littering. Trash barrels are placed all over the facility that should be used for disposal purposes. It is important for the Little League Central Region to keep this a safe and clean environment.
 
Lastly, I asked Wags what were some of his favorite things? I started off by asking him his favorite baseball player, without hesitation he told me it was Al Rosen. Rosen was a third baseman for the Cleveland, Indians. When I asked his favorite MLB team he loyally answered, “Cleveland”. Wags favorite sport to play is golf. He golfs often with a group of his friends. Lastly, I asked what his favorite kind of food and he answered Italian. He and his wife, Joanie, often go to Olive Garden.
