After fans were cleared out of Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park by a rain cancellation last Monday night, Sheena Parker, owner of 4SYT Industries, a facilities maintenance company, said her crew stayed behind to uphold their duties.

“If we’re rained out or something is canceled, our crew is still there,” Parker said.
It”It must be done,” she added. Parker shared how pleased she is to be one of the few black-owned companies contracted with Citizens Bank Park, where the team also preps the stadium for concerts and other events.

“It’s a labor that’s often overlooked,” said Parker.

“People just look at ‘Oh, I’m in a situation.” seat,’ but they don’t realize how much time it takes to ensure there is no debris in your seat. That there is no debris on the ground because that changes your entire experience when you’re walking into something that is not clean.”

As an Army veteran and woman in a male-dominated field, Parker revealed she is often the only Black woman when she visits sites. Aside from the stadium contract, 4SYT is responsible for all state buildings in Delaware and the Atlanta public school system. She also has contracts with companies and venues in six states along the East Coast.

With game three between the Phillies and Houston Astros being postponed, the remainder of the 2022 World Series schedule was pushed back by a day.

There’s a good chance Caleb Williams will hear his name called first in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The USC quarterback is coming off a remarkable sophomore campaign that saw him capture the Heisman Trophy, and it wouldn’t be surprising if he became just the second-ever two-time Heisman winner in 2023.

Williams won’t have much control over which team he suits up for next after the Trojans. But if he could choose his NFL landing spot, where would it be?

“I like to be around younger coaches. I’d probably go to the Dolphins,” Williams recently told PEOPLE. “I also would be able to play with Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, and Mike Gesicki. The defense isn’t bad. That’s probably my No. 1 spot.

“I also like the colors. The colors are pretty cool and the weather’s good.”

An interesting choice from the Washington, D.C. native. Mike McDaniel certainly fits the bill of a young coach at age 39. And with uncertainty around Tua Tagovailoa’s future in Miami, the Dolphins could be in the market for a quarterback this time next season. So there’s at least a possibility Williams ends up in his preferred spot.

Miami isn’t the only destination that piques Williams’ interest, though. The 21-year-old also identified the San Francisco 49ers, Las Vegas Raiders, and Atlanta Falcons as teams he’d like to join before adding that he’d “play anywhere.”

That will be music to the ears of any QB-needy teams that didn’t get a mention
