Courage Over Fear

In this episode, Slade Heathcott, former outfielder for the New York Yankees and current Co-Founder & Director of More Than Baseball, shares his story of overcoming childhood trauma and being living out of his truck in high school to later becoming the New York Yankees' 1st Round Pick in the 2009 MLB Draft. Likewise, Slade also chats about the challenges of the minor league baseball lifestyle, what it was like to play alongside Yankee Hall of Famers, Derek Jeter & Mariano Rivera, and a rather comical account of one of the larger bench-clearing brawls in minor league baseball, which kicks off the top of the episode.

Joined today by former New York Yankees outfielder Slade Heathcott. Slade and I talk about the current ALCS and if the Yankees being down 2 games to 1 means the series is over. We talk about what’s REALLY going on in the clubhouse, what the players are thinking and the pressure that is October baseball. Slade lets us know what he thinks the Yankees should do in the offseason and offers his predictions for the rest of the playoffs. We talk about all the non-profit charity work he’s involved in, especially what he’s doing for the clean-up efforts in the Dominican Republic. Slade tells us about the harsh conditions and pay of a minor league ball player, what can be done to improve it and what happened to him 2 days after “Slade Runner” night when he was playing. We touch on Tyler Skaggs and the tragic opioid epidemic and why his foundation morethanbaseball.org can be the buffer MLB needs. He shares his passion of flying, how he got his pilot’s license and some of his dream destinations. From not being able to get his Yankee memorabilia back, to meeting Derek Jeter and what’s next.
