He is one of the enduring hard men of professional sports, logging 34 of his 55 years with professional baseball. Of those years, he has spent a jaw-dropping 25 on the hallowed fields of the Major Leagues as both a hard-charging player and a steely-eyed field general. He has been to the World Series four times- once as a player and three times as a coach, finally wrapping his battered, dusty hands around the World Series Trophy in 2010…and yet again in 2012 and 2014. Impressive credentials for any man, but here’s the thing- baseball is only a part of his story.
He is also a prolific and talented songwriter. That’s right- this ferociously hard-working baseball legend is also an award-nominated musician who regularly packs venues across the globe. He is a seasoned fingerstyle legend of Americana music with a gift for crafting potent, resonant songs and delivering energetic, emotional live shows.
