All Ex-Jay Eric Thames needed was a change of scenery

By: Devon Teeple

Former Toronto Blue Jays prospect Eric Thames is destroying baseballs on an epic level. Drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft, he climbed the ladder on his way to the big league level at an accelerated rate, solidifying his ranking as Baseball America's #15 rated prospect in the PCL.

Once promoted to the Jays' MLB roster, he battled another highly touted Jays prospect in Travis Snider for one of the remaining outfield spots. Unfortunately, neither performed up to the lofty expectations set in front of them. Both were traded prior to the end of the 2012 season. Since, Thames has spent time in the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros minor league organizations doing what he always does; produce.


Undrafted's Chad Toocheck discovered what's important

By: Devon Teeple

Chad Toocheck was featured on the NFL Network’s Undrafted. The show focuses on collegiate football players looking for an opportunity to play at the next level. The road is long, the road is hard, yet every athlete has one goal in mind; play in the NFL.

Toocheck’s story is one of struggle, redemption and ultimately, success. After battling through years of addiction, the NFL is no longer his priority. His focus is now on helping others who have gone down a similar path.

By: Devon Teeple

The season has started and Tommy Bahama's 2016 MLB Collection is available.

David Ortiz, one of MLB's most celebrated players, has been immoralized on Tommy's 2016 Collector's Edition Series. Ortiz is a sure fire Hall of Famer and one of the greatest Boston Red Sox Players of all time.

"We are so excited to be able to develop a special ‘Collector’s Edition’ shirt honoring David Ortiz’s amazing career,” said Doug Wood, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “It’s projects like this one, that have made our long-standing partnership with Major League Baseball so rewarding."

Tommy also prepared a night out with Ortiz where fans could get their photo with him, receive an autographed baseball, and partake in a Q&A session hosted by Mark DeRosa.


It's more than wrestling, WWE changes lives

By: Devon Teeple

In World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) personalities, not just athleticism, drive the business. From Hulk Hogan, the Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, these "public" figures are larger than life.  

Wrestlemania 32 is set for later tonight and the festivities will be in full throttle. Their yearly Hall of Fame induction ceremony that featured Sting, The Godfather, The Fabulous Freebirds, Big Bossman, Jacqueline, Stan Hansen, Joan Lunden, and Snoop Dogg is amongst the highlights of this star-studded weekend. Aside from the glitz and the glamour, what gets lost is the outstanding work in the community and dedication to social responsibility.
