Workamping at Spring Training

What a gang!

I have been working at the LAA Angels home Spring Training games at the Tempe Diablo Stadium since 2/23.  I was assigned to work with Phil who I met while workamping at Amazon last winter.  Here is a pic of our group lined up in front of our booth the Triple Play Grill.

We are located on the third base side of the field and every now and then a foul ball happens to come our way.

Watching batting practice…

We come in 2 1/2 hours prior to each game and get the stand ready for all the food and drink sales.  Sometimes when we are all set up we can watch batting practice.  Today I got to see the Angels hitting.

I was really lucky to get this shot of Albert Pujols at bat.  How great is that!

Busy, busy, busy…

But once the game starts it is very busy.  The orders are flying left and right and sometimes it is hard to keep up, but we all have a very good system of staying on top of the orders and getting the food and drink to the fans as quickly as possible so they can enjoy the game.

Her are a few pics of our group in action and our work area.

We have a great group and everyone gets along really well.  We are always laughing and everyone enjoys each others antics at times when there is a lull in customers.  We are all kept very busy but still have a good time together.

Last game coming up…

Our last game will be on 3/27 against the Angels arch rival, Texas.  It should be an exciting game.  Then the Angels are off to Anaheim and we workampers are off to points unknown.  It has been a great experience working with this group and we sure have had a lot of laughs.

  1. Glad it worked out for you! Seems like a lot of fun. Think you meant 2/23 in the first paragraph…
    See you down the road.

  2. So glad you had a chance to do this gig. It sounds like a lot of hard work but having great fellow workers makes it so much better.
