Born into a family of professional baseball players, the first Bill Lee appearance in professionally baseball was as a part of the 1968 Major League Amateur Draft, having been drafted in the 22nd round by the Boston Red Sox. He played for the team from 1969 to 1978 and for the Montreal Expos from 1979 to 1982.
Lee will be inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in November 2008. He will also be inducted as record-holder for most games pitched by a left-hander in team history and the third-highest win total by a southpaw. In addition to success on the field, Lee has written four books and a 2006 documentary film entitled Spaceman in Cuba.
**Bill Lee Speaker**
Nicknamed “Spaceman,” Lee’s intelligence, articulate and humorous speeches, and his outspoken manner have frequently made a Bill Lee speaker appearance in press conferences and other functions a well received event. The list of Bill Lee speaker topics can include population control, Greenpeace, school buses in Boston, and anything that grants him the opportunity to say what’s on his mind.
**Bill Lee Appearance**
A Bill Lee appearance isn’t just about playing the game of baseball, it is also known to have a strong sense of justice and respect for teammates and the history of sports in general. An avowed purist and traditionalist, Lee is not afraid to criticize management, including opinions on everything from the designated hitter rule to the polyester uniforms.
**Bill Lee Endorsement**
Intensely competitive and a quick worker, Lee was able to endear himself to the community. Most notably, especially because Boston is a college town, Lee was highly regarded by the youths of the city. His advocacy for doing things right, as well as his brilliant sports career, have become a Bill Lee endorsement of how to live life for many local children and aspiring athletes.
