List of Spring Training former player staff?
I'm collecting for a set from 2000. I know a decent chunk of those players works in a baseball from office or coaching staff in some way. Anyone have a list of some prime candidate for TTM in spring of former players?
IE I know Mark McGwire is probably better to get during ST and he's the current Dodgers hitting coach.

I got McGwire a couple of years ago when he was hitting coach for the Cardinals. He was a pretty good signer. Some teams have signing events but they are few and far between, at least in Florida. Almost every team used to have an event where you could buy a ticket, go eat, then get autographs of most of the players. Only a couple of teams have events anymore and they are mostly only for spring training season ticket holders.

MLB.com has the coaching and front office staff for most teams listed. Pretty easy to pick out your guys that way. How I did my 1987 Topps set for this years ST.

The thing is that there is usually more than what's just on the mlb.com roster. And there's milb coaches also

Another great time is fall instructional/winter leagues for MiLB staff/players. They usually are at the ST complexes for winter.
