"We've had guys here since January and they look like they are ready to go even though we haven't really started yet," Twins minor league coach Tommy Watkins said. "Having a place where they can go to get their work in has been really helpful to the guys,"

The impact it has had on the development of young players has reverberated throughout the Twins' system.
"I definitely see the advantages," Watkins said. "They have everything they could want in the palm of their hand and I think in the coming years it is going to be even better."
Watkins serves as the hitting instructor for the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Twins' Double-A affiliate, and has seen a difference over the last two years in areas like player preparedness and nutritional habits when they get promoted from Fort Myers.
Having a base of operations in Fort Myers year-round also aids in the organization's goals of community outreach.
On Sunday, Watkins, who graduated from Riverdale High in Fort Myers and still lives in the area, was part of Hammond Stadium's spring training open house and youth clinic along with several of the organization's minor leaguers, many of whom reside in the player dorms.
"It's been huge for the community," said Watkins.

Cedar Rapids Kernels hitting coach Tommy Watkins knows his way around a minor league field, having spent parts of 11 seasons as a player in the Minnesota Twins minor league system. Toward the end of the 2007 season, he got to live the dream of every player who ever put on a minor league uniform when he was called up to the Big Leagues by the Twins.

Strategic bunting, clutch hitting, diving catches, good baserunning, controversial umpiring, and a 9th inning manager ejection (the Kernels manager, Brent Del Chiaro... though Snapper manager Nelson Prada and 1B coach Tommy Watkins came close to getting early showers one play later, following what could best be referred to as a pretty obvious "make up" call).
