Today as part of National Mentoring Month, I am grateful for the late Dave Niehaus, the unmistakable voice of the Mariners for over 30 years and the man responsible for giving my nickname, AROD. He was so good to me since the day I first walked into Fenway Park, as an 18-year-old in 1994. Great voice and an even greater passion for the game. He epitomized everything that’s perfect about the game of baseball. Thank you sir. #Legend#MyOhMy#MLB#SwingForTheFences
#TBT It’s mentor month: I met Edgar as a 17-year-old when Seattle drafted me No. 1 overall. I’m so grateful to have had him take me under his wing. I’ve often said he’s got a PhD from Harvard in hitting. He taught me so much. I was like a sponge around him. He was kind and generous with his information. Best right-handed hitter I’ve ever seen, but an even better person. A family man, a father, a true role model. Edgar - I just want to say thank you. You’re already in my #HOF. #SwingForTheFences@mlb@mariners
“Who’s your greatest mentor?”
••• When I was in 5th grade, my teacher noticed how much work and detail I put into my writing. Not only that, but also how much I enjoyed the activity. Writing was my way of expressing some of my opinions or crazy ideas. This teacher, talked with me about writing and helped me develop and grow into a better author. Sure, all my stories back then were about gummy bears taking down the Roman Empire or whatever else my ten year old imagination came up with. But still, she continued to give me tips and tricks to improve the chaos I had put on paper. To this day, I still remember some things she told me. One of them, was to never give up. Everyone has heard this before. Its always “never give up,” or “finish what you started,” but it means something different to everyone. For me, It meant that I should never give up on my dream that some day I would publish a book. I haven’t given up. Thanks to Ms. Morton, I know how much hard work goes into dreams. I know that even when it gets tough, that I should continue to challenge myself and push through writers block and other obstacles until Imake it to the end. Have I thought of giving up before? Hell yeah. I ask myself every day if staying up till 1am writing is worth it. But you know what, it is. Because it means that I am taking the time to work hard and keep the promise that I would never give up. As long as I keep that promise in mind, along with Ms. Morton’s lessons, I will get done what needs to be done. This has been my mindset for years now, and every time someone asks me who inspired me to write this book, I can say it was a 5th grade teacher who noticed a young girl’s passion for storytelling and made sure she did something amazing with that passion. So, who’s your greatest Mentor? ••• Thanks to @arod and @arodcorp for inspiring this extremely long paragraph. #swingforthefences
It is #NationalMentoringMonth so let me speak really quick on two of my mentors from the boys and girls club.
Edwin and Angel Castillo have served the youth of Humboldt Park Chicago for over 20 years! They have been an important part of my life since losing my father to lymphoma cancer when I was 11. These two have been father figures to myself and countless others! They are both still impacting lives today. Edwin is still at the club and his brother Angel is a Chicago Public Schools security guard.
In November of 2016 I held a HUGE surprise event to honor them at our old boys and girls club. It was one of the most special events I have ever been a part of. This pic is from that day. #swingforthefences#Arod#Arodcorp#HonorYourRoleModels
