    Cecil Fielder

    Cecil Fielder is a former Major League Baseball player who split his career between five different teams: Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Cleveland Indians.

    After 31 home runs in four seasons as a part-timer for the Blue Jays, Fielder revived his major-league career following a year in a Japan, emerging almost overnight as one of the 90’s most prolific sluggers and placing his name alongside baseball’s most-hollowed home run heroes. The good-natured first baseman, immensely popular with fans and players alike, was the first Tiger to hit a baseball completely over the left field roof at Tiger Stadium, and the first player ever to hit a ball over the outfield bleachers at Milwaukee’s County Stadium. Fielder’s 51 circuit blasts in 1990 marked the first time an AL player had reached 50 since Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris in 1961.

    Larry Kehres

    In 2009, Larry Kehres (Care-Us) begins his 35th year at Mount Union College and his 24th season as head football coach. In his 23 years at the helm of the Purple Raiders he has built one of the most successful programs in all of college football.

    His teams have won 19 Ohio Athletic Conference Championships (1986, 1990, 1992-2008) while posting 17 undefeated regular seasons (1986, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1995-2004, 2006-2008) and claiming 10 of the last 16 NCAA Division III National Championships (1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008).
