Player-favourite Clubhouse Attendee Glenn ‘Magic’ Hall, a West Van resident, will be returning to the C’s in 2008 as the ‘Clubbie’.
Making the players meals, washing the uniforms, watching over the clubhouse etc. are just part of his duties with the Canadians. Essentially, it’s a 24-hour job and not many people are cut out for the position. Luckily for the Canadians and their future players, Glenn is. From the C’s site:
Glenn Hall will be returning for the 2008 season marking his fourth year with the Vancouver Canadians. A die-hard Bruce Springsteen fan, Glenn spends countless hours at Nat Bailey as the ‘Boss’ of all that goes on in the C’s clubhouse. Glenn prepares meals for the team, ensures their uniforms and other personal belongings are ready for each and every home game and is generally every players ‘big brother’ during the season.
Glenn resides in West Vancouver, B.C. during the season.
And, here’s an excerpt from an article The Province did on Glenn Magic back in 2006.
Hall ? dubbed "Glenn Magic" by the C?s ? also does all the cooking. And the grocery shopping. And the cleaning. He has an apartment at Horseshoe Bay, but he?s never there. In winter, Hall works in northern Alberta and B.C. as a cook in work camps for the oil and gas industry. He?s used to being around gangs of hungry men. But working for a sports team ? in particular, a baseball team ? is something he always wanted to do.
"I was always curious about doing this job," says Hall, who found out about the Canadians job on the Internet. "The atmosphere is tremendous," he says. "The baseball knowledge that you?re exposed to and the players at this level are totally appreciative. ? You don?t get the bitterness you might get with some of the older players further along [?] And you get invested in how they do. That?s one thing I wasn?t prepared for. You get emotionally involved in how they?re playing."
