Q&A with the Rainiers
While you’ve been staying home, so have your favorite baseball players. With games on hold, we caught up with current and former Tacoma Rainiers to learn what exercises they’re doing to stay in shape, what games they’re playing to stay entertained, and what dishes they’re cooking up to keep their bodies in tip top shape while in shelter.
“Recently, my mom has been kicking my butt in Backgammon so I think the competitive side makes me want to keep coming back from more… even though she’s too dominant.” – Darren McCaughan on what game’s he’s playing in quarantine
“Standing out in the outfield warming the pitcher up as the fans are starting to roll in and the atmosphere is starting to grow is always one of my favorite parts of the day.” – Joe Odom on his favorite memories from Cheney Stadium
“I would have to go with Braden Bishop. He’s been one of my closest friends in baseball. We’ve lived together for the past few years and the dude can cook and make the best cup of coffee out there.” – Tim Lopes on which teammate he would want to be quarantined with
