Zac Phelps

Zac joined the Blue Jays in January of 2010. He grew up in Lawrenceville, GA and currently resides in New Port Richey with his wife and two children.

When Zac isn't installing new seats, pressure-washing the concourse, remodeling the bullpen, putting up billboards or raising First Half North Division Championship banners at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, you can find him under the hood of a car. Or several. Zac is the proud owner of (at least) two Ford Mustangs, and he enjoys listening to "The Bobby Bones Show" during his morning commute.

For reasons undetermined, Zac simultaneously supports the Boston Bruins and Dallas Cowboys.

In her spare time, Michelle enjoys traveling, deep sea fishing, boating and anything that has to do with the water! When Florida's occasionally rainy climate forces her to stay inside, Michelle can't resist a few episodes her favorite shows: TMZ, Impractical Jokers, and Cheaters, which apparently all exist. If the Blue Jays offered an award for "Diligence in Front Office Recycling," Michelle would be a five-time reigning champion.
