Over the last 20 years, Disney Reservation Center cast member Lisa Ritchey has attended more than 300 Atlanta Braves Spring Training games. She credits her dad for taking her to her first Big League game as a little girl, when she met (then) New York Yankees player Greg Nettles, and getting her hooked on this great American pastime.

While she’s more than a little dedicated to the team (she even schedules her vacation so she doesn’t miss a single game), Lisa has made friends through fellow fans through the years that she now considers her extended family.

As we prepare to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex next week, we interviewed Lisa about her passion for the game and why she won’t even answer her phone once the umpire shouts, “Play ball!”
