Get To Know...Coach Joe

Coach Joe absolutely loves Miracle League (we're certain the feeling is mutual). In his own words: "I look forward to each MLM game and count the weeks leading up to the season. Through the seasons, I cherish the relationships I have built and grown with the players. Nothing gets me more than an unexpected hug from a player. Equally touching is to have a player share something personal that happened to them that week leading up to game day."

Coach Joe's enthusiasm on the field is matched by his enthusiasm for his family! He's married to the beautiful Lynn Vesey (28 years now!) and is a proud father of two lovely girls, Allison and Kayla (who have been buddies before). Joe works for GlobalWare Solutions, an eCommerce fulfillment/distribution and supply chain company. Besides spending time at work, with us, and with the family, Joe dedicates a lot of his time to the First Baptist Church of Littleton, Mass. And if there is one item he uses more than his baseball glove, its his passport! Joe and Lynn are world travelers! Some of the greatest traveling fans on the planet, (really Lynn more than Joe), the pair just returned from BVI Tortola! It is clear Coach Joe makes a point to get the most out of life, spending just about every moment doing something he loves. We can all learn from Joe to make the most of life by doing what we enjoy and enjoying what we do!
