    Thought I'd share this interesting story that appeared on my Twitter feed. It's about a kid named Chris Martin who is now a relief pitcher with the Colorado Rockies.

    Before making it to the majors, his career dead-ended in JUCO and he was forced to go get a real job. Amongst them was "delivering packages at night for UPS".

    My best guess was that he was a PM Air Driver or something like that.

    The only other MLB player that I know of that worked for UPS was Gino Cimoli who worked at the company after retirement and drove 21 years accident free.

    Good for him. Now he gets to live every kids dream. Cudo 's to him. I know how much effort he needed to put in. To get there
