PawSox Speakers Bureau
Now that I’m officially in off-season mode, it’s time to kickoff the PawSox Speakers Bureau. If you have a Rotary Club, Lions Club, school, or other civic group, and need a guest speaker at an upcoming event, I just might be your guy.
I can speak on a variety of subjects ranging from the business of minor league baseball, to the PawSox charitable efforts, to working in professional sports. I’ll always sprinkle in some humor and fun stories from the road, as well. If I can be of help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com.
- I’m a little late mentioning this, but Nick Cafardo’s Sunday column in the Boston Globe said PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler “put himself on the map with a nice run as International League champion … Beyeler is an excellent baseball man and won the title under tough circumstances, i.e. a revolving door of players. He may have a shot at being a big league coach and perhaps a manager at some point.”
- Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports that Jason Varitek is “close” to taking a job with the Red Sox. (No, it doesn’t appear to be as manager.)
- Our minor league friends up north in Maine will be doing some big time landscaping soon. The Double-A Portland Sea Dogs are installing a new irrigation system and playing field for 2013. The new irrigation system is more efficient and replaces the the previous system which was installed in 1985. For you turf pros out there, the new playing surface at Hadlock Field will be 100% Kentucky Blue Blend.
- In news every PawSox fan cares about, my favorite pop princess, Katy Perry, has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year. I like to think my $16 ticket to Katy Perry: Part of Me in 3-D helped her win.
