Finding Stillness At 95 MPH : Shawn Green at TEDxOrangeCoast

"Life becomes much more fulfilling when we practice working and playing with complete presence", says Shawn Green on redefining the relevance of our life. Shawn Green's Major League Baseball career spanned fifteen seasons with four teams: the Toronto Blue Jays, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the New York Mets. During his baseball career, he won numerous accolades including both the American League Gold Glove Award and the Silver Slugger in '99. He finished in the top ten of voting for league MVP three times and was named the LA Sportsman of the Year for his 2002 season. But, statistics tell only part of the story. His path to success was as grounded in philosophical study as in baseball wisdom. Striving to find stillness within the scene of Major League Baseball, Green learned to approach the sport with a clear mind. This approach transformed him as a player, as a family man, and as a post-career athlete transitioning into other paths. He retired from baseball at 34 to spend time with his wife, Lindsay, and their two daughters. AboutTEDx. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading."
