Since the winter can be an especially tough time to drum up #hot #relatable #content, I decided to try something different. I asked every Twins player I could find in the dugout over the season’s final weekend the following question:
“What would you be doing for work if you weren’t a professional baseball player?”
So for each player, I’ll ask Twitter what they think, and every good-faith answer will be used.
Sound good? Good.
The player: Jose Berrios

What do you call a trucker that doesn't drive a truck, but just hauls semi-loads worth of stuff everywhere using their legs?

Whatever it would be, he’d be 100% committed to being the best at it. He’s got a work ethic and drive like few others.

Brandon: If you weren’t playing professional baseball, what would you do for work — and why?
Jose: Wow. Good question. I don’t know, maybe a teacher? I like working with kids.
Brandon: What kind of teaching?
Jose: Physical education.
Brandon: So like that, and Health too?
Jose: Both! Yeah. I’ve learned a lot during my baseball career that I could bring to the students.
