Minor-League Buzz, Major-League Life

by Don Miers

Buzz Meyers grew up in the 1960s, so it should be no surprise what he’s all about: baseball, sex, rock ’n’ roll—and baseball.

Toiling at different jobs, he can’t help but think how wonderful it would be to work at a ballpark, and he gets his chance when he becomes the sales and concessions manager for the Hampton Roads Monitors, a minor-league team near Virginia Beach.

He might not be a player, but this is the next best thing, and while he puts in long hours, he also gets the chance to party and meet baseball legends, upcoming stars, and a cast of unforgettable characters.

The longer he stays in the business, the more he realizes he’s partying a little too much, and he starts trying new things, including giving back to his community, lecturing, acting, singing, and even hosting his own radio show.

When he runs for elected office at the same time his team is engaged in a heated pennant race, he has no idea what to expect. But no matter what happens, he can bask in the satisfaction of having lived a major-league life in the minors.
