Meet Our Speakers
Keynote Speaker Bill Buckner:
For his entire career, Buckner was known as one of the more consistent contact hitters in the major leagues: in 2,517 games, Buckner accumulated 2,715 hits and only 453 strikeouts. Despite an impressive 20-year career, Bill will forever be remembered for a ground ball that rolled between his legs for an enror in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Buckner never let this setback define who he was or how his life would be defined. After he retired from professional baseball he moved his family to Boise, Idaho, where he invested in real estate: one of the housing subdi­visions which he developed is named Fenway Park.
