The same year I began attending SABR conventions, so did THT Founding Father Aaron Gleeman. Though his weights have had their ups and down over the years, he’s always been a big guy. This bottomed out in early March of last year, when, at 28, he weighed 355 pounds.
He started a diet and exercise regimen, quitting crap food, counting his calories, and working out virtually everyday. As he’s noted on his own blog, the results have been a huge success.
Gleeman, who stands slightly over six feet, checked into SABR weighing about 166 pounds. That’s impressive.
The amount of weight he’s lost is enough for a person. In fact, if you took the weight he lost and created a new person out of it the same height as Gleeman, that person would be borderline overweight by BMI.
So yeah, Gleeman looks a lot better. He says he feels much better and has a lot more energy. And he is eating—it’s not like he’s starving himself. He’s just been really consistent in doing all the right things for months on end. It’s gone from being a diet to just how he eats. He notes that in the future he’ll have to shift more toward building up muscle instead of sweating off calories when he works out, but for now he’s a helluva success story. Kudos to him for pulling it off.
There were some nice bars and restaurants, most notably a rooftop bar with lawn bowling.
if a prospect has 35 innings pitched in 35 appearances, the manager and pitching coach will both find themselves in hot water
