Up close with Phillies great Shane Victoriano

Oct 11, 2010

Sometimes the best aspects of our One by One partnerships are not in the three-year plan, but in the ideas that come up along the way.

Case in point: last week, Nutrilite marketers joined up with a Boys & Girls Club in Philadelphia to host a baseball clinic with superstar Shane Victorino of the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies are two games up in the National League division playoffs, and Victorino has played a prominent role in their success.

Of course, the 60 Club members in Philly didn’t need an introduction – they were already fans.

Victoriano talked to them about the importance of a eating a colorful diet, rich in fruits and vegetables. He also covered hitting, catching and base running. Each child received one-on-one instruction from Victoriano, as well as from Phillies’ hitting coach, Greg Gross, and bench coach, Pete Mackanin.

All of this was made possible because Amway was in town to promote its Nutrilite Phytonutrient Tour across the country. The tour works with dietiticans and nutritionists to educate people about the importance of nutrition, as outlined in the America’s Phytonutrient Report.

Thanks to Tom Sturgeon for contributing to this post, and for organizing this event.
