07:07 AM ET 05.24 | Few jobs in sports take on more hours than a trainer's, and good ones are coveted. Tucked away in the background, working miracles that defy explanation, is the single greatest asset in baseball that next to nobody recognizes. Herm Schneider is 60. For the last 34 years, he has been the athletic trainer for the Chicago White Sox. And over that time, they have put together a run of health that when compared to their peers is flabbergasting and can be explained by one of two things. Either the White Sox happen to have come upon an inconceivably healthy group of players for more than a decade, or Schneider leads a training staff more than twice as good as the rest of the league's.

Too bad the training staff can't play in the field. Maybe they'd have a winning record.

It's secret because they have about 17 fans total.
