Honest speak

As a father/husband/brother/son and as someone who has dealt with mental health issues from a young age, I have a unique perspective that can be shared in many ways.  From coping skills to leveraging those skills in my career in collegiate/professional athletics to being successful in the business world, it’s how I can help youth and others struggling. I never had, or let’s say, even knew of any type of support back in the 80's/90's as a young person. It wasn't talked about, and of course, the stigma that goes with it can cause you, especially men, to reluctantly fall...

2022 All-Independent Team

I’m going to make an educated guess and say if you ask the casual baseball fan about Independent Baseball some may know the ins and outs of it while some may just know of it because of the partnering with Major League Baseball and the adoption or testing of new rules.  What’s lost in this, and what I hope to share today with you, is the level of talent housed under this umbrella; Atlantic/American/Frontier/Pioneer/Pecos/Empire/United Shore What we're talking about are players who’ve played at the Major League and Minor League level and have been cut or released and trying to...

Jeff Heath: MLB’s hidden gem

Talk about professional sports in Thunder Bay and names of local stars like hockey's Staal brothers, Patrick Sharp, Alex Delvecchio and Olympic athletes like Curt Harnett and Sean Crooks often come up. When was the last time professional baseball's Jeff Heath was mentioned? Fort William, before the Thunder Bay amalgamation, was in the hands of Mayor Harry Murphy, who was elected four times by the great people of Fort William between 1916 and 1919. At this time, and with a population of roughly 30,000, the city was booming and coming the roaring 1920’s, Lakehead Ports had the greatest grain handling...

Wellness Wednesday: November 23, 2022

A very special Wellness Wednesday today! Brady Leavold is our guest. If you are unaware of who Brady is, please take a moment to listen. Brady was a promising young hockey player with hopes and dreams of playing in the NHL. To be honest, I didn’t know anything about Brady, his career, or life. I was scrolling through Instagram a few weeks ago. And by the grace of some higher power I read a post from Nipissing University. The post read; “Join former elite hockey player Brady Leavold and Dr. Rob Graham on Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m. at...

Wellness Wednesday: October 26, 2022

Trying to educate yourself on Autism is a never-ending process. The last couple nights I was doing some reading and found two stories that I wanted to share. It’s about two MLB players; one current and one retired. Both at different stages in their careers and in life. Both have baseball in common, both have children with autism. The Athletic did a feature on Tampa Bay Rays outfielder and first baseman, Harold Ramírez. His son, Elian was diagnosed with autism three years ago. Ramirez dyed his hair blue to help put more of a spotlight on autism with the hope...
