Today we are reaching back to a guest we had on the show about one year ago, my son Austin Hedges. Austin is a professional baseball catcher for the Cleveland Indians. After nearly a decade of playing since graduating high school for the San Diego Padres, he was traded in late August to the Cleveland Indians. What I hope to chat about today has to do with both the inner emotional roller coaster ride, of ups and downs, family life, professional life and the place of dreams in the most competitive of environments. This show will be a “behind the scene” view of what it is like to be both hero as well as unappreciated. Fans are fickle and they frequently feel the right to express their opinions: many positive and some not so positive. In addition I want to get into “life during the season” and “life during the off-season.” For more with Charlie Hedges please visit
