catthomas985:

So proud of my friend Drew Vertiz. He was always a pro when we worked together in Las Vegas and now he is a stud in the baseball world! He’ll probably be running the Giants someday! Great interview!

“Inside the Core” is a month-long interview series with members of the Fresno Grizzlies front office. Each interview will be unique in its own way and provide a glimpse into the path each member has forged on their way to working for the club. 

Did you play baseball as a kid?

I started playing baseball when I was probably six or seven years old and then played all the way until I was 16.

You weren’t one of those kids wanting to go to the Major Leagues?

I think every kid wants to be a professional baseball player or some kind of pro athlete.

You were born in Redwood City, California, so when did you move to Clovis?

1979

What did you picture yourself doing outside of high school?

Something in sports. I wanted to be an agent when I was growing up, but then I realized how much law…

Would You Like To See Me BALD And Embarrassed?

Joey Fatone Shaves Cat Thomas

Joey shaving my nugget to raise money for Kids Cancer!

Thank you for taking under 120 seconds to read this. I personally appreciate it. On Saturday, March 2nd, I will shave my head to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Children’s Cancer. This is my 5th year raising money for Kids with Cancer.
I hate this disease and this is the ONE time a year I put it all on the line for a personal cause. My personal fight with cancer started at age two. That is when my mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She died when I was four. Less than two years ago, my sister lost her battle with cancer. It’s always tough when these things happen to you. However it’s even more devastating when it happens to a young child. To see the terror in their face because they don’t understand why or what is happening to them. To watch a mother or father as they feel helpless and at times, hopeless. You can see the look on their face when they are out of the sight of their stricken child. The deflation after having to hold it together to be strong for their kid. This is what kills me the most. A couple of years ago, I watched Jillie, my little girl, who is always cheerful with a smile on her face getting ready to do a live break on KYDZ radio to help raise money for St. Baldrick’s. She was excited to do her part to help other kids. As she started recording her break for the radio, she saw a friend from school who was there. So she asked her what she was doing at St. Baldrick’s. Her friend said, “I’m here to support my Dad who’s shaving his head and my brother.” Jillie asked “Is your brother shaving too?” Her friends teary eyed reply was “No, my brother has cancer.” I watched as Jillie’s face went blank and her eyes teared up. All she could do was drop the mic, grab her friend and give her a big hug. I watched this knowing that my little girl would never be the same. A small piece of innocence left her that day but it was replaced with something much, much greater. A sense of cause and empathy for another. As her and her friend embraced and cried, I knew that this was now not only personal for me but for her as well. When you realize the pain that families go through and the battle that these young kids fight every day, it brings tears to my eyes. This 240 pound man get reduced to a babbling, crying mess….Yes I’m a softy! It really puts things in perspective. When you think about how bad your day is, keep these kids in mind. Yep…my problems are minor. These kids are the beneficiaries of your donations! Since St. Baldrick’s started, the 10 year survival rate for kids with cancer has gone from 20% to over 60%! So often we forget our blessings until we sit down and really reflect on them. So I’m asking you to make a donation. I’ll take $5, $10, $100 whatever. It is all going to help kids with cancer…and that’s good enough for me! If you wish to make a donation, just click here: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/catthomas Thank you for your time! FYI…feel free to share and when I hit $5,000 I will dye my hair blonde. At $8,000 I’ll add the PINK highlights. I can tell you it’s tough for a guy my age to wander around with strange looking hair for a few weeks so my embarrassment is your incentive! We will also have some cool celebrity shavers if you want to join us at 6pm on March 2nd at McMullan’s Irish Pub on West Tropicana. Come join us and support the kids and as always I do this in memory & honor of our friend who lost his battle with cancer at age 2, Jackson Reeves!
