Washington Nationals star Jayson Werth was the keynote speaker at the Organic Trade Association 2017 Policy Conference that happened earlier this spring between May 23 and May 27. Even though Werth is known for being so brash on the field, he is also a big promoter of sustainable, organic produce, and protecting our planet’s bee colonies. The baseball player talked about his family’s beekeeping and how important they are to our ecology system. In addition to that, he discussed the importance of going green to preserve our planet and the importance of organic farming, as it is the time that the human race puts more effort into ensuring healthier lifestyles moving forward. Locals were impressed that Werth came to this event, but it was also obvious that he was a perfect fit for the role.
The Springfield, Illinois native started playing baseball at a young age of seven while participating on traveling teams in his home state. His original plan was to play baseball at the University of Georgia, but all of that changed when he was drafted in the first round as the 22nd overall pick by the Baltimore Orioles in the 1997 MLB Draft. Werth’s MLB debut was in September 2002 for the Toronto Blue Jays with whom he played with for two seasons before going to the Los Angeles Dodgers for another two seasons. From 2007 to 2010, he played for the Philadelphia Phillies and then finally landed a spot with his current team in 2011, the Washington Nationals. Through this May 2017, the Outfielder has hit 224 home runs in his career so far.
Werth was the keynote speaker for this year’s Organic Trade Association 2017 Policy Conference that happened earlier this May. Locals and attendees were thrilled to have him at the event, as he is popular in both the sports industry and with promoting organic produce and green sustainability.
