During Jim Sundberg’s 16 year Major League career he was regarded as one of baseball’s best and most respected leaders. As a catcher he was the field chief behind the plate, and his teammates fed off of his calm and confident demeanor during games and in the locker room.
With this reputation in mind, Cleary University tapped Sundberg to speak about leadership dynamics, team concepts and offer up some sports parenting tips at the 2014 Livingston Economic Club Luncheon on October 9.
The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Johnson Center on the Howell Campus of Cleary University in Howell, Michigan. Tickets for the luncheon are $45 for a plated lunch and prime seating, and $25 for those just wishing to hear Sundberg speak.
“This is the perfect offering for parents who have children participating in sports, no matter what the level,” said Grace Farley, program director for the LEC luncheon. “We wanted to give as many people as possible the opportunity to hear Mr. Sundberg, so we are offering discounted tickets just for his presentation without lunch.”
Jim Sundberg played the first 10 years of his big league career with the Texas Rangers before joining the Milwaukee Brewers in 1984. He went on to see time with the Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers from 1985 to 1989, and despite bouncing around from team to team in the later years of his career, he was still one of the best catchers in the league.
The winner of six Gold Gloves, Sundberg was the best defensive catcher of his era, posting a .993 career fielding average, which was 8 points higher than the league average over the span of his playing career. In 1985 he reached the pinnacle of his career by helping the Kansas City Royals to a World Series championship. For his leadership and production on the field, the Rangers honored him with induction into the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame in 2003.
