Fridays at Findlay: True Leadership

True Leadership
Jerry Blevins, Major League Baseball pitcher for the Atlanta Braves

Jerry will be speaking about the different types of leaders he has come across throughout his career, and how they have impacted his life. He has found that leadership plays a key role in life, whether you’re playing baseball or raising a family. Many people say they are, but few know how to be a true leader.

Jerry Blevins recently finished his 13th season in Major League Baseball, where he has pitched for the Oakland Athletics, the Washington Nationals, the New York Mets and currently, the Atlanta Braves. He graduated from Arcadia High School in 2001, where along with baseball, he also played football and basketball. He attended the University of Dayton on an academic scholarship and ended up earning a spot on the Flyers’ baseball team. From there, he was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2004 and played in the minors before hitting it big in 2007 with his start for Oakland. His love of baseball stems from an early age, watching the Oakland Athletics in the 1990 World Series. He looked up to other players like Rickey Henderson, Jose Canseco and Ken Griffey, Jr. Blevins still resides in Findlay with his family.
