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.

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."
