A founding partner and managing director with Boston-based 625 Investments, LLC, Ted “Theodore” Catino is an accomplished public speaker who also works as a transition and interview coach. When he isn’t spending time on one of his several professional endeavors, Ted Catino enjoys cheering on the Boston Red Sox.
For the past decade, Dustin Pedroia has been a staple in the Red Sox lineup, while holding down his spot at second base for the majority of that time. The diminutive California native has played less than 100 games in just two of the past 10 seasons and, entering the 2017 season, has played in a total of 1,398 games for the Red Sox since debuting with the team in 2006.
The four-time All-Star has been a consistent offensive threat throughout his career, hitting for no worse than .278 average in each of his 10 full seasons. He won American League (AL) Rookie of the Year in 2007 after hitting for a .317 average and driving in 50 runs. The following season, Pedroia led the AL in runs scored, hits, and doubles en route to winning the AL Most Valuable Player award. He also won his first of four Gold Glove awards that season.
