Peanuts, hotdogs and a cold drink. Baseball is a great passtime for most, but in the Utah office of St. John Properties, it’s anything but that.  We cheer, we cringe, we comment and me make calls about the plays.   We even tease and joke about the other team but we know at the end of the day, just like those players, we are a team. We are family. We that being said:


Today is the day. Baltimore plays New York. I will be watching the game on the big screen tv in the beautiful lobby of Grove Tower.  Shh! don’t tell my boss…Im a Yankee fan.
