N.Y. CUs to hear baseballs Johnny Bench at convention
ALBANY, N.Y. (4/29/10)--Major League Baseball great Johnny “Catcher of the Century” Bench will give the keynote address at the Credit Union Association of New York’s Annual Business Meeting and Convention, June 8 in Cooperstown, N.Y. As a Baseball Hall of Famer, broadcaster, author, philanthropist and Emmy Award winner, Bench is a symbol of winning through hard work and teamwork, said the association. He will offer his strategies for success--drawing parallels between the worlds of sports, entertainment and civic involvement. Bench signed a limited number of baseballs to be sold during the convention’s vendor expo. The proceeds will benefit CUPAC, the association’s Political Action Committee, which provides non-partisan contributions to pro-credit union New York State and local political candidates. Bench made the Cincinnati Reds’ roster for the 1968 season and stayed with the team until his retirement. Bench was a 14-time All-Star and 10-time Golden Glove recipient. He holds the major league record for home runs by a catcher (327) and set an endurance record by catching 100 or more games for 13 consecutive seasons. In 1989, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame with the third highest percentage of total votes cast.
