Some of Bert's appearance sponsors:
"The Stearns History Museum was fortunate to have Bert Blyleven as the presenter at our annual fundraising event. This morning, less the 12 hours after the event, calls began coming in from our members attending the festivities. They used words like warm, gracious, funny, and generous to describe Bert. His connection with the audience whether baseball fan or not was evident. Even if someone didn't know much about the game they were drawn in by his baseball stories that had both broad appeal and universal messages. To quote a guest "he's one of the most genuine people I've ever met." And as far as the baseball fans, well they were over the moon."
from the Minnesota Grain & Feed Association:
On behalf of the Minnesota Grain and Feed Association Board of Directors, I want to thank you for a very entertaining and engaging presentation at our convention last week in St. Cloud. You certainly captivated the audience with your heart felt and humorous stories of getting to the major leagues, lessons learned along the way and in sharing some entertaining insights into the mischief and high jinks that accompanied you along your path to the Hall of Fame. It was truly our honor to have you on our program and it was great that you were so accommodating with photos and autographs following your presentation.
We thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and participation and thank you for being such an integral part of a very successful convention!"
With Best Regards,
Minnesota Grain and Feed Association
I have received some very positive feedback following your presentation at our Annual Lease Partner meeting on August 9th.
You provided great humor to your childhood and your start in baseball. Your definition of BASEBALL and how it relates to life and business was very good. The question and answer session was a “huge” success in that you provided your honest opinion on numerous subjects, such as steroids and Rogers Clemens eligibility into the Hall of Fame as well as current handling of pitchers with respect to number of pitches, etc. Your direct approach to answering questions is very refreshing and the audience was very appreciative. I knew that those attending from the Twin Cities would have great interest in hearing you speak but we had attendees from across the United States and had positive remarks from them as well.
The signing of baseballs and picture session was also a huge success. We had over 125 attendees at this meeting and I believe everyone took advantage of this opportunity. You asked questions of each individual, answered additional questions they had and made everyone feel good about being a part of this session. It was a great way to end our meeting.
I certainly would recommend Bert as a speaker to other such meetings as he provides humor, candor and a good message. Thanks again for taking the extra time and effort to make our meeting a success!"

You were very personable and engaging while at the podium and mingling with our guests. We are honored you came to the Gallery and we would like to welcome you to our family as an honorary member.
