UPDATED: Can I Bum a Ride to the Ben Petrick Forum?

Oregonian: Former MLB player Ben Petrick to talk about Parkinson’s

RSVP: Former MLB Player and Author, Ben Petrick Lunch Forum

ELGL is excited about our next event with Ben Petrick, here’s a summary of next Thursday’s lunch forum:

Ben, a native of Hillsboro, Oregon, was a professional baseball player for the Colorado Rockies and Detroit Tigers.  His career was cut short when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and could no longer perform at a high level.  He has recently released a book talking about his diagnosis and finding the strength to battle Parkinson’s and be a father and coach.  This is sure to be an interesting talk about perseverance and dealing with adversity.



To help our members get to know one another a little better and save money on gas at the same time we offer a list of people who have RSVP’d to upcoming lunch forums so you can ask for a ride. So take a look remember that one of these people works down the hall and ask them if you can bum a ride.


Free passes aren’t just for batters, just ask for a ride from your coworker.
