Compelling Careers: What it's like to be a Rangers bat boy

There are so many great careers and jobs out there, I'm always fascinated to find out how someone got into a certain line of work and what exactly it takes to do be in that position every day. 

Timothy Plummer is a clubhouse assistant and bat boy for the Texas Rangers. He knows the players, he sits in the dugout every game, and it's safe to say his job is exciting. As a big fan of the team, it's fun to feel like family and "one" with the players.

I sat down with him to pick his brain and learn the awesome details of what it's like to be on that field every night.

Sidenote: He told me later that one of the players paid for a surgery for him. If that isn't family, I don't know what is.
