"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.

Kris Atteberry emcees the panel of Trevor May, Byron Buxton, Tommy Watkins, Thad Levine and Brian Dinkelman They included a pair of Twins players, pitcher Trevor May and outfielder Byron Buxton, newly announced Kernels manager Tommy Watkins, new Twins General Manager Thad Levine and Brian Dinkelman, who served as the Kernels hitting coach in 2016 and, while no official announcement has been made as yet, is presumed to be serving in that capacity this summer, as well. Still, Watkins said, "I didn't know if I would get it or not." Trevor May and Tommy Watkins react to Byron Buxton explaining how he "noodled" a catfish Once the assignment was officially offered, Watkins was very happy to accept. Asked by Atteberry to tell the gathering what went into the front office's decision to offer the job to Watkins, Levine led off with tongue firmly planted in cheek. "One of the things that I heard when I first joined the Minnesota Twins was about the man to my right, Tommy, and I think the universal feeling was that he had a chance to be a really good hitting coach, but he had the chance to be special as a manager. Watkins said before the event that he's looking forward to his return to the Kernels. The final question from the audience asked Watkins and Buxton to relate the funniest thing that happened to them during their time with the Kernels.

There was a signup sheet in the Kernels' clubhouse with nine lines on it for volunteers to sign up to work the camp. Every line was filled and a couple additional players wrote their names in between the lines, giving Watkins a group of 11 ballplayers pitching in for the two-hour long camp, topped off with an autograph session. Kernels General Manager Scott Wilson was also appreciative of the time put in by Watkins and the players. "The way that Tommy runs it now, I love it, because everybody rotates to little different things."

Watkins believes English can handle the spot at the top of the Kernels' batting order. He's got tools," Watkins said, of English, over the weekend. "I think there is a difference when you lead off," Watkins added, "but just talking to Tanner about slowing things down a little bit and not using his body as much.

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.

Watkins recently sat down and talked about his role with the Kernels and more. Tommy Watkins: Things are going great here. Watkins: Everybody's different. Watkins: It's a lot of work, but I'm only dealing with twelve or thirteen guys at a time, so it's not too bad. Watkins: I think it's good. The guys all take it pretty serious.

Watkins: We get video of a couple guys every night. Watkins: I love the coaching part of it and coaching in the Big Leagues is a goal of mine. Watkins: Yeah it is. Watkins: I thank him. He might be able to help me out a lot!
