Day 2 of the Winter Meetings has come and gone. Today had a little bit of player movement as Carlos Pena inked a reported one-year, $10 million deal to be the new first baseman of the Chicago Cubs.
In other activity, the Yankees contingent made the short drive to their complex in Tampa to officially sign icon Derek Jeter to a 3 year deal. Back in the Dolphin and Swan Resort, everyone was relieved to find out that Rockies Manager Jim Tracy is ok, following his collapse in the lobby on early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday was a day of interviews for the 66ers staff, as Director of Group Sales Steve Pelle’ and Assistant Director of Groups Joe Rugo (shown in the picture above), joined Director of Promotions Matt Kowallis and Vice President of Marketing Kevin Shaw in interviewing candidates for potential intern positions with the staff.
Following a long day of interviews and meeting a lot great and energetic people, a few offers were made. We will be hoping to unveil our new hires in the next couple of days.
Following the interviews, the staff joined Tony Reagins, Mike Scoiscia, Tim Mead, Abe Flores and the rest of the Angels contingent in Abe’s suite for an “Angels Cocktail Party” for all of their Minor League Partners. Fun was had by all as the staffs of Orem, Cedar Rapids, Inland Empire, Arkansas, Salt Lake City and the Angels all caught up on the past years events. We want to thank the Angels for all of their great hospitality!
