Ryan Kalish: For the Love of Baseball & Navigating Uncertain Times


I’m excited to welcome Ryan Kalish onto the show today. Ryan has a great story of resilience, belief, and moving forward in the face of uncertainty. As an MLB player, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2006 as a top high school prospect. Ryan then debuted in the major leagues in 2010, and by the end of the season was voted the Red Sox Rookie of the year. Things were looking bright for the young MLB player; he was a building block for the Red Sox future. Although after a healthy 4-year start, Ryan began dealing with grueling injures that kept him sidelined for most of 2012 and 2013 seasons…from 2011 to 2015, he had over 10 major surgeries. How do you deal with that many surgeries and keep a positive mindset? When do you look in the mirror and question the right path? What drives Ryan to push and defy the odds to play in the MLB again? Ryan and I dive deep into these questions, and uncover what baseball means to him, and much more. In 2016 Ryan Kalish was called up to the Chicago Cubs, showing his hard work, belief, and no-quit mentality had paid off. Enjoy the show!
