BOOKS

They Call Me Pudge

by Ivan Rodriguez (Author),‎ Jeff Sullivan  (Author),‎ Nolan Ryan (Foreword),‎ Jim Leyland (Foreword)

With 14 All-Star appearances, 13 Gold Gloves, a Most Valuable Player Award, and, of course, a World Series ring, Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez has more than earned his spot in Cooperstown as one of the best Major League catchers of all time. In They Call Me Pudge, Rodriguez tells the story of his unforgettable baseball journey, from signing his first professional contract as a 16 year-old in Puerto Rico, to his years in Texas, Detroit, and beyond, to the World Series stage in Miami, and behind the doors of the Texas Rangers front office. Rodriguez's accomplishments, his teammates, and his biggest challenges all receive time in the spotlight in this refreshing memoir of a life and Hall-of-Fame career.

Con 14 apariciones All-Star, 13 Guantes de Oro, un Premio de Jugador Más Valioso, y, por supuesto, un anillo de la Serie Mundial, Iván “Pudge” Rodríguez ha ganado más que su lugar en el Salón de la Fama como uno de los mejores receptores de las Ligas Mayores de todos los tiempos. En Me Dicen Pudge, Rodríguez cuenta la historia de su inolvidable viaje de béisbol, desde la firma de su primer contrato profesional como un jugador de 16 años en Puerto Rico, pasando por sus años en Texas, Detroit, y más allá, hasta la etapa de la Serie Mundial en Miami, y detrás de las puertas de la oficina de los Texas Rangers. Los logros de Rodríguez, sus compañeros de equipo, y sus mayores desafíos reciben tiempo en el centro de atención en esta memoria original de una vida y carrera en el Salón de la Fama.

LIFE AFTER SPORTS

 

Entrepreneur I Speaker I Philanthropist I Athlete


After Mr. Rodriguez’s retirement from baseball, his love for the game endured and to this day he continues to be involved in the sport through his involvement as the Special Assistant to the General Manager of the Texas Rangers, coaching of various major and minor league ballplayers as well as his work as a sports analyst for Fox Sports South West. Off the field, Mr. Rodriguez has and continues to be a well-versed businessman taking on a wide range of investments both domestically and abroad. Pudge also enjoys donating and giving his time to many different communities and non-profit organizations because giving back is a virtue he holds close.


 

Q&A: 4 for 4

 

Have you found any new hobbies or interests that motivate you now?

I love to play golf because I take it very seriously and make it a challenge every day I play. I’m very competitive and this still brings some of my competitive spirit out! I also love to learn about business and entrepreneurship topics and also try to make some time to help and give back to my community.

 

What has been your primary goal in life after sports?

My primary goal has always been to learn and educate in different topics, especially how to become a better entrepreneur and how to make a difference in people’s lives! I feel there are different ways to help people and that’s very rewarding to me. I love to make a difference with kids and spend some time with my fans!

 

What accomplishments do you feel most proud of after retirement?

I enjoyed my career and loved that I was able to play for 21 years at the MLB level; what I feel proudest of is to have won a World Series because it was a team effort and it feels so good to win with your teammates! That moment was great. I would also feel proud that my legacy was that I’m a great human being outside of the field as well! I love my fans, and love to spend time with them! I really play the game of baseball hard to provide a good show for them! They are my inspiration!

 

Where did you want to live after you retired and why?

Every team and city that I played at was special! Dallas, Texas and Miami, Florida (where I live right now), will always have a special place in my heart. I love both of those places because they both have special moments in my baseball career.
