Spring Training is always a good time to work in some team bonding, and there’s no better way to bring a group of players together than by sharing a meal while watching "The Bachelor". So naturally, Phil Hughes of the Minnesota Twins hosted a viewing party for Monday’s finale, and the Twins went all out while waiting to see whether Ben Higgins would pick Lauren Bushnell or JoJo Fletcher.
This was no take-out pizza and potato chips affair either. According to Rhett Bollinger from MLB.com, Hughes and his fiancee had a menu with something for everyone. It featured a taco bar, Pasilla chicken, Mexican street corn, Korean BBQ braised short ribs and kimchi (likely as a way to welcome new Korean slugger Byung-Ho Park).
But food was not the main attraction of the night. If Twitter is any indication, plenty of Twins players were locked into the action on the screen. Hughes even live-tweeted his thoughts on the finale, and his account of the proceedings is priceless.
