Former MLB Pitcher, Bob Tewksbury will be the 2018 featured speaker at the 19th Annual Dinner and Awards benefit on Monday, October 22 for The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester. Mental Skills Coach and Author of “Ninety Percent Mental,” Bob will share his knowledge of what it takes for individuals or athletes to perform at their highest level.
Tewksbury has a unique professional resume which combines an eighteen-year professional baseball career, winning 110 major league games pitching for six different teams; the NY Yankees, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres and Minnesota Twins. He was also a member of the 1992 National League All-Star team.
Bob holds a master’s degree in sport psychology and counseling from Boston University, and is a Certified Mental Performance Consultant(CMPC) currently employed by the San Francisco Giants. His resume includes working with the Boston Red Sox Teams from 2004 – 2013, which included three World Series Championships (2004, 2007, 2013).
In addition to his work with major league baseball teams, Bob’s work also spans across the college level. A recent testimonial from a college coach read, “The work that Bob has done with my teams at Bates and Middlebury College has been transformational. He communicates the important concepts of the mental side of the game and introduces ways in which players can develop their own mental skills routines as players. His work with my teams has benefitted them on the field, but more importantly, has helped them to see how to connect these skills to their personal lives so they can grow as people.”
The Annual Celebration for Mental Health benefit will be held at The Derryfield Country Club in Manchester. Award recipients for Community Leadership and Wheelock-Nardi Advocacy, will also be recognized during the event. A brief book sale and signing will be offered following Bob’s presentation.
