Rick Sweet has spent a lot of his life tending to the success of others.
Sweet has put in 30 seasons as a minor league manager, guiding young baseball players on the way to the majors.
Tuesday night, Sweet’s San Antonio Missions players doused him with ice-water after the team’s 10-2 victory over the Round Rock Express at Wolff Stadium. It was Sweet’s 2,000th win.
The Missions currently have the best record in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League at 49-29.
