Todd Greene (2015)

Todd Anthony Greene is a former Major League Baseball catcher. In an 11 year career, he played for the Anaheim Angels, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies, and San Francisco Giants. He batted and threw right-handed. Greene was born in Augusta, Georgia, and attended Evans High School in Evans, GA and went on to attend Georgia Southern University. While playing for the Eagles, he was named the TAAC Player of the Year in 1990. On October 30, 2001, in Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, he caught the first pitch thrown by President George W. Bush in only the second instance of a sitting President throwing the first pitch of the World Series. On May 4, 2006, in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Greene was seriously injured in a home-plate collision with Brewers' first baseman Prince Fielder. While Greene continued to play for the rest of the season, his shoulder had suffered serious structural damage. During spring training the next season, while with the San Diego Padres, Greene tore two muscles in his weakened rotator cuff while attempting a throw to second base. He never returned to the majors following the injury.

About the Todd Greene Interview

Hello, Redditors! I'm Todd Greene, the inventor of the HeadBlade, the most effective head shaving razor available.

The prototype of my original design -- one of TIME Magazine's "Ten Best Designs of 2000" -- currently resides in the permanent collection at MoMA in New York. Since coming to market in 1999, we've sold over 1 million HeadBlades.

For more information about HeadBlade's shaving and grooming products, visit our website: .

Pre-HeadBlade, I worked at Starwave (joint venture between Paul Allen and Disney) where I worked on the ESPN.com Fantasy Games (and wrote a blog under the pseudonym "Mr. Enright") from 1995 to 1997. Before that, I was an artist for Sierra Online and worked on lip-sync animation for the King's Quest series; I was also a character in their Berlitz for Business (Japanese and Spanish) CD's.
