About Dan Blewett
I played six years professionally, enduring Tommy John surgery twice. I became an All-Star after each one, something I'm very proud of. I own a baseball academy in Illinois called Warbird Academy and each day as I work with young people, I try to pass on the lessons I learned.
Though I didn't ultimately reach the Major Leagues, I learned a ton about myself and about life.
In college, I studied Philosophy and was frequently asked "what are you going to do with THAT?" Well, my degree in Philosophy prepared me to build a business, to become a good educator and to share my knowledge in a meaningful way.
I'm thankful for my journey as a ballplayer even though I took the longer, harder route up that mountain.

Dear Baseball Gods,
Why didn't you look out for him? Didn't he deserve better? He hustled, competed, and played the game the right way. What happened wasn't fair.
A Second Comeback
Dan sat by a tree, staring at the ground trying to decide what he would do next. The doctor had just explained that everything he worked for was now ruined. A second Tommy John surgery? Does anyone come back from that? Is my career over? Is this it?

As a walk-on in college, Dan had to earn everything. He pitched on three hours sleep, lived in the clubhouse, played for a team that collapsed mid-season, and endured more arm pain than any kid should.
A Way to Move On
When finally forced to hang up his cleats, Dan looked in the mirror and didn't recognize the man peering back. If no longer a ballplayer...what would he do? What had been the point of it all? Who was he?
