“First and foremost it was just a good group of guys that were fun to be around, we had a great manager in Warren Schaeffer, and just getting an opportunity from the Rockies to play every day, that was something I haven’t done in a while. So, I mean that was kind of icing on the cake if you will, and it’s just pretty rewarding,” said Bird.
