More About Me:
Along with being a Major League outfielder for the Cincinnati Reds, I am also the Co-Founder and CEO of Players for the Planet, formerly known as We Play Green.
Players for the Planet was founded by myself and Cleveland Indians pitcher Jack Cassel. The goal is to bring professional athletes together to inspire communities to build awareness of the growing environmental crisis. Players for the Planet intends to use professional athletes and how they incorporate green in their own lives to demonstrate various methods that sports fans can utilize to make a difference themselves. For this, we welcome any and all professional athletes with an interest in making their voice heard, looking for a way to get involved or who simply would like to offer their support. PlayersforthePlanet.org is one channel that we will use to spread awareness.

This is a call to action throughout all of professional sports to provide stadiums, locker rooms and playing fields with the proper recycling receptacles and outlets to help corral the amount of plastic that is used during the extent of the season. We need our players, front office and managerial personnel to help in this fight to clean up the environment. We will call upon team officials to cooperate with city officials as well as local recycling outlets to help provide the necessary equipment. In addition, our call to action extends to the millions of sports fans on how they can play green in their every day lives.
