Jason Hirsh – Former Rockies Pitcher



GUEST SPEAKER – Juan Marichal

   Juan Antonio Marichal Sánchez (born October 20, 1937) is a Dominican  former professional baseball player. He played as a right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball most notably for the San Francisco Giants. Marichal was known for his high leg kick, pinpoint control and intimidation tactics, which included aiming pitches directly at the opposing batters' helmets.

   Marichal also played for the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers for the final two seasons of his career. Although he won more games than any other pitcher during the 1960s, he appeared in only one World Series game and he was often overshadowed by his contemporaries Sandy Koufax and Bob Gibson in post-season awards. Marichal was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983.



Guest Speaker – Bud Black

Harry Ralston "Bud" Black is an American former professional baseball player, coach, and current manager of the Colorado Rockies. He played in Major League Baseball as a pitcher from 1981 through 1995. He coached the Anaheim Angels / Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim from 2000 through 2006, and managed the San Diego Padres from 2007 through 2015. He was named the National League Manager of the Year in 2010.
