Los Angeles Dodgers Joc Pederson released a feature on Players Tribune last week titled “Live Like a Champ” where he opened up about his older brother Champ Pederson. In the feature, co-written with his big brother, Joc highlights how his brother has become such a vital part in the Dodgers clubhouse and in his career.

But, “Live Like a Champ” is more than just a slogan.

An excerpt from Joc Pederson’s article on Players Tribune:

Every person who meets him immediately knows what it means to “Live Like a Champ.” It means you stay positive, even on the tough days.

Pederson is highly involved with an organization named Best Buddies. According to their website, Best Buddies is the world’s largest non-profit organization designed to help “end social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).”

Champ is a prime example of how to live life to the fullest and maintain a positive attitude. That mentality has led a clothing company named Baseballism to partner up with Perderson to raise funds for the Best Buddies organization.

It’s a great cause and a great shirt with a great message.
