Episode #133 features Chef, Reuben Harley aka Big Rube and New York Yankees Public Address Announcer, Paul Olden, and an Extra Special Rant from Co-host, Jeff Reuben Harley is known to everyone as Big Rube.  We invited him on to discuss the product he created, Diamond Dirt Rub which is perfect for your grilled foods and can be found at baseballbbq.com https://baseballbbq.com/products/big-rubes-diamond-dirt-rub.  Big Rube's love of fashion and baseball helped turn a passion for throwback jerseys into the marketing plan that helped Mitchell & Ness cross over from a niche supplier of old jerseys to older men into a pop-culture phenomenon. Throughout his career, Big Rube has used cooking to fuel his passion, selling homemade cakes, operating a food truck, and cooking in pop-ups to satisfy hungry customers. Over many acts of a varied career, Big Rube has become an accomplished photographer, a fashion designer, and a sought-after chef.  We talk about so many things, including his mother being a seamstress for Muhammad Ali's wife, his grandfather driving Jackie Robinson, his 35-year friendship with Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff, and his decision not to appear in their music video as to not lose out on tip money, and the perfect Philly Cheesesteak which he makes and serves at Philadelphia's, Pitchers Pub.        Paul Olden has had an incredible and distinguished career in the world of sports, which has led him to his current position as public address announcer for the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.  The journey has included working as a radio and television play-by-play announcer for the Yankees, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, California Angels, Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Eagles, UCLA Bruins, Los Angeles Rams, New York Jets, New Jersey Nets, and ESPN as well as serving as a sports update guy for WFAN radio.  Paul is another of our guests who have been a target of an infamous profanity-laden rant from the late, Los Angeles Dodgers manager, Tommy Lasorda.  From 1994 to 2005, Paul worked as the Super Bowl public address announcer.  We discuss all of this and so much more as Paul leads us through his wonderful life and career. Between the two interviews, Jeff has a rant you will not want to miss. We recommend you go to baseballbbq.com https://baseballbbq.com for special grilling tools and accessories, the Pandemic Baseball Book Club, https://www.pbbclub.com  to find many of the wonderful books we have featured as well as some additional swag, BBQ Buddha, https://bbqbuddha.com/ for rubs and award-winning sauces and Magnechef https://magnechef.com/ for excellent and unique barbecue gloves.

What a thrill this week for Carl to meet one of his childhood heroes, "Sudden" Sam McDowell, star of his beloved 1960's Cleveland Indians. Sam was a five time all-star pitcher who was deemed to be the next Sandy Koufax. He was a young superstar under great pressure, however. Sam tells us his career was fueled by alcohol and addiction. You don't need to be a sports fan to be inspired by Sam's amazing second act. After he was "thrown out of baseball", Sam's life hit rock bottom. He lost everything -- his family, his job, his will to go on. But Sam recovered and turned it all around in a big way. He became the very first sports psychologist and counselor for professional sports teams. His programs continue to help hundreds of players and their families deal with the same addictions he suffered. Fun fact: The popular TV Show "Cheers" based their Sam Malone character on Sam. • Sam's new book, The Saga of Sudden Sam: https://tinyurl.com/45nbruc6 • Episode Content: https://pickleballmediahq.com/blog/Sam-McDowell-Interview-All-Star-Player-with-Hall-of-Fame-Second-Act • Sponsored by Capital Advantage: https://capitaladvantage.com/podcast • Sponsored by How to Retire and Not Die: https://garysirak.com/how-to-retire-and-not-die • Subscribe to the I Used to be Somebody newsletter: https://pickleballmediahq.com/contact/subscribe

#268 Mark Bennett Masterclass Part II: How to Implement the PDS System, Avoid Common Mistakes, and Engage Parents and Coaches in the Process of Creating the Needs Centered Environment

In Part II of our Masterclass with Mark Bennett, founder of Performance Development Systems, we build upon last week's session and cover how to implement the PDS needs centered approach, how to avoid common mistakes, and how to engage fellow coaches and parents in the process. If you have come here first, we highly recommend starting with episode 267 or some of what we speak about will not make much sense.  Mark Bennett (@PDScoach) has been one of our most popular guests over the years, and has been training, coaching & mentoring individuals and teams since the early 90s, including world and Olympic champions, professional rugby teams, the Cleveland Indians of MLB, and Oklahoma Thunder of the NBA. He joined the British Army in 1983 and passed the world famous Commando course in 1990, and while serving with 29 Commando Regiment as the senior instructor, running the Commando Training Wing, Mark was the first person to initiate structural change to the way soldiers were trained for the commando course. His work in this field culminated in the design of the Performance Development Systems; a holistic and robust approach to maximize real world performance for organizations, coaches and athletes. Following several years of running, designing and quality controlling “train the trainer” courses for the Military, Mark turned down promotion in order to leave the forces to commit to working on PDS full time. He has spent over 30 years researching and developing effective learning and adherence systems to help coaches and trainers maximize the performance of the individuals and teams they are working with. In 2006 Mark was awarded the Member of the British Empire (MBE) by her Majesty the Queen for his work in developing the system. In Episode 267, we discussed the foundations of PDS, including the Rule of 3, developing non negotiables, UAE's, and the importance of self awareness and state for both coaches and athletes. Mark has recently launched a super deep dive online course which you can get 25% off by entering Champion25 at this link. It is a great course that I have recently gone through and cannot recommend it highly enough. https://bit.ly/37riGVE ANNOUNCING THE 2022 WAY OF CHAMPIONS VIRTUAL CONFERENCE, JUNE 25-26: Yes, we are going virtual again in 2022, and we have already amassed an incredible lineup of guests that we are ready to announce, with more to come.

Rick Saggese, XFS, CSAC, played his collegiate baseball at the University of Miami; one of the top collegiate baseball programs in the nation.  At Miami, Rick battled back from his third knee injury while getting hurt in Honolulu, Hawaii to open the season.  He kept his goals in sight once again and became a three-year starter, played in three College World Series, was a Collegiate All-American, and accumulated a career .302 batting average with 21 home runs and 101 RBI's.  In 1996 Rick played in the National Championship game against LSU which was arguably the best College World Series title game in history, as LSU won in the ninth inning on a walk off home run.  During the 1997 & 1998 summers Rick started for the Hyannis Mets (now Harbor Hawks) in the Cape Cod Amateur Collegiate Wooden Bat League and played with former MLB stars Eric Hinske, Eric Byrnes & J.J. Putz. In 1999 Rick transferred to FIU (Florida International University) for his senior season.  He finished his collegiate career by hitting a game winning homerun against South Alabama at the Houston Astros AAA stadium.  He played with Alex Cora (Boston Red Sox Head Coach), Pat Burrell (Phillies/Giants), Aubrey Huff (Rays/Giants) and Jason Michaels (Phillies/Indians) during his playing days at Miami.  Rick was coached and trained by some of the finest coaches in the country including Walter Hriniak (former Red Sox/White Sox batting coach), Jim Morris (Miami) and Mark Calvi (South Alabama)!  Rick has trained athletes in core/strength training with the same exercises that are used at world renown athlete's performance centers and uses the Mattes Method (AIS) to help increase flexibility and explosiveness.  Rick was an associate scout for the Cleveland Indians for 5 seasons and knows what scouts look for in players to excel at the professional level. Rick is an EXOS Certified Fitness Specialist as well as being certified to perform the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Y-Balance Test (YBT).  He uses FMS prior to the majority of strength and agility training to assess the athlete for possible “weak links” associated with their movement patterns.  He also not only goes over past injury history with the athlete on the initial session, but does a postural analysis as necessary to find deeper related movement limitations.  He has participated in some of the top speed/quickness camps in the country and is an Certified Speed and Agility Coach by the National Sports Performance Association.  Rick has attended and learned from events taught by various top success and peak performance coaches including Tony Robbins, Dan Lier, and Jim Fannin. Take your game to another level on and off the field as Rick will help you remove any barriers that may be holding you back to get the success you want.  Rick has helped many of his clients play at the collegiate and professional levels (view testimonials tab). He offers personal consulting services to coaches, parents and players on the methodologies he has successfully implemented in his training the past 19 years with over 15k athletes he has trained.

Dana and Tom discuss one of their favorite baseball movies that has a lot of personal sentimental value for Dana in Major League (1989): directed and written by David S. Ward; starring Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen, Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes, and Bob Uecker. Plot Summary: Former Las Vegas showgirl Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitton) inherits the Cleveland Indians baseball team from her deceased husband. Phelps hates Cleveland and wants to relocate the team to Miami, but to do so she needs attendance for the entire season to be below 800,000. Determined to put together the worst team in the major leagues so there is no fan interest, Phelps hires Lou Brown (James Gammon) to manage a team of nobodys and has-beens including overpriced Roger Dorn (Corbin Bersen), voodoo-practicing Cuban-defector, Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert), catcher Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger), a brash speedster, Willie Mays Hays (Wesley Snipes), and a former felon pitcher, Rick Vaughn (Charlie Sheen). Will Phelps get the team she desperately wants or will they put it all together? Please follow, rate, and review the show wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode, he shares the early stages of his career from playing baseball in Brazil to moving to Florida for high school. While very talented at the time, Yan talks about doing the extra work, and really cultivating his work ethic in his college years to take his game to the next level. He also shares what life is like during the season, making friends with other professional athletes in different sports and finding a balance amidst all the traveling done throughout the year.

It also won The Ortho Show's New Innovation award during the conference. The ArthroFree wireless system—surgical camera + receiver—is equipped with the Meridiem™ Light Engine (MLE™), and requires a fraction of the energy of comparable wired camera systems. The system is designed to simplify sterilization, decrease setup and breakdown times, and eliminate the need for the light source and the power source on the surgical tower. The ArthroFree wireless system will eliminate the hazards of fiber-optic cables, along with the need for camera cable management by surgical assistants.

EPISODE SUMMARY In a span of ten years, from 1949 to 1958, the New York Yankees won the American League pennant nine times and the World Series seven times. The only year during that span the team failed to win the pennant was in 1954. Despite having an exceptional 103- 51 record, they finished eight games behind the first-place Cleveland Indians. Cleveland finished the season with 111 wins and only 43 losses. Their .721 winning percentage remains the all-time highest winning percentage in the American League.

Episode 88 Notes and Links to Father Greg Boyle's Work              On Episode 88 of The Chills at Will Podcast, Pete welcomes Father Greg Boyle, S.J., founder and director of Homeboy Industries. The two discuss Father's growing up in Los Angeles, his formative days in the Jesuit order, his life-changing time in Bolivia, and the breathtakingly-inspiring work he has done in the almost 40 years that he has worked at Dolores Mission Church and Homeboy Industries. The two discuss Father's transcendent books, Tattoos on the Heart, Barking to the Choir, and his newest stunner, The Whole Language: The Power of Extravagant Tenderness.            A native Angeleno and Jesuit priest, from 1986 to 1992, Father Boyle served as pastor of Dolores Mission Church in Boyle Heights, then the poorest Catholic parish in Los Angeles that also had the highest concentration of gang activity in the city.  Father Boyle witnessed the devastating impact of gang violence on his community during the so-called “decade of death” that began in the late 1980s and peaked at 1,000 gang-related killings in 1992.  In the face of law enforcement tactics and criminal justice policies of suppression and mass incarceration as the means to end gang violence, he and parish and community members adopted what was a radical approach at the time: treat gang members as human beings.  In 1988 they started what would eventually become Homeboy Industries, which employs and trains former gang Fathemembers in a range of social enterprises, as well as provides critical services to thousands of men and women who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life.  Father Boyle is the author of the 2010 New York Times-bestseller Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion. His book, Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship, was published in 2017.  He has received the California Peace Prize and been inducted into the California Hall of Fame.  In 2014, President Obama named Father Boyle a Champion of Change.   He received the University of Notre Dame's 2017 Laetare Medal, the oldest honor given to American Catholics. Currently, he serves as a committee member of California Governor Gavin Newsom's Economic and Job Recovery Task Force as a response to COVID-19.
