Rudy Ruettiger

Rudy Ruettiger, Anyone who has been moved to another city for your employer knows the costs involved in the possibility of paying two rents or mortgages.

It turns out that the players are no different.

After being sent to Triple-A earlier this season Reno, utility Arizona Diamondbacks Ryan Roberts (notes) decided to borrow a page from Rudy Ruettiger and make the clubhouse of the Aces’ home instead of subletting elsewhere.

Yes, with his wife and daughter preferred to stay in their rented apartment in Phoenix – that he thought would be with the D’Backs all year – Roberts thought he had saved a few dollars per bunking near his locker for about two months.

Nick Piecora Arizona Republic has all the details of the story:

“I just could not let anyone see you,” said Roberts. “After the game, I sat on the couch in my uni to Bugsy (Reno manager Brett Butler) was going, so I think I was going all the time. Then I shower and go out with the cleaning crew.”


“Yes, who had arrived around 11:30? They were fresh. There was Vic and Dave; these would be there 30-45 minutes JJ. I go out with them [...] It was kind of fun. ”

Not as bad as it sounds. Roberts, of course, a stay in a hotel when the Aces went on the road. It also emerged from a room when his wife and daughter came to visit. When he had to stay in the clubhouse, he could play video games in the clubhouse TV and make sandwiches in the kitchen supplies.

That life probably sounds like the dream of 72 percent of people currently reading this article (and 100 percent of those who write in this blog), but Roberts is still the hope that the time has come and gone for him. It was called only by D’Backs and returned to their traditional home decorations in Phoenix.
