Nancy Bea Hefley - Organizational Soldier
2004-06-04 16:20
by Jon Weisman

From T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times:

He (Lon Rosen, executive vice president and chief marketing officer) said he had limited the play of organist Nancy Bea Hefley, saying, "Nancy is all for it."

From Les Carpenter of the Seattle Times:

On this night, her assignment is to play for a half hour before lineups are introduced, play the national anthem, play at the end of the first and then whenever the Dodgers pitching coach walks to the mound, which never happens on this evening. She can also play her customary half-hour after the game. Otherwise she chats with sportswriters, old ballplayers and anybody else who happens to walk through the press box. What else is there to do?

"At first it bothered me because it took away some time to be creative," she said. "I finally decided I had two choices either enjoy it or quit. And I do like my job."

Of course, this kind of combination of articles is manipulative. Theoretically, one could do the same thing to garner sympathy for Ned the Evil Dodger Janitor. Just because the reduction of someone's job duties is sad for that person doesn't mean that it's sad for all of us.

But this one makes me sad.
