Bert, I wanted to thank you for the work you did on our Minnesota State Lottery Beneficiary TV commercial. The spot is outstanding! I've spent the past 30 years involved with helping craft, approve and guide TV commercial production, which has included working with the vast array of Miller Lite Beer All-Stars. Athletes often need a lot of coaching, since their athletic ability usually does not translate to quick, comedic performances in front of the camera. You are one exception. From the minute you assumed your position by the piano on the set, I noticed you were both relaxed and aware of how you were supposed to "act." And trying to have a normal interaction with puppets can't be an easy thing to do! However, in addition to following the script, you also delivered several very warm and yet humorous moments that greatly improves the feel of our spot. It was these actions of yours that takes our TV commercial from "entertaining" to truly "engaging," and we know it will resonate with the public. You are not only a Hall of Fame professional baseball player and a true pro in the broadcast booth, but a seasoned actor who may have found a new career direction. Thanks again for helping the Minnesota State Lottery and best of luck in the off season.

from the Minnesota Grain & Feed Association:
On behalf of the Minnesota Grain and Feed Association Board of Directors,
I want to thank you for a very entertaining and engaging presentation at our convention last week in St. Cloud. You certainly captivated the audience with your heart felt and humorous stories of getting to the major leagues, lessons learned along the way and in sharing some entertaining insights into the mischief and high jinks that accompanied you along your path to the Hall of Fame. It was truly our honor to have you on our program and it was great that you were so accommodating with photos and autographs following your presentation.
We thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and participation and thank you for being such an integral part of a very successful convention!
With Best Regards,
Minnesota Grain and Feed Association

a nice note from United Bankers' Bank:
We wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with Bert Blyleven’s appearance at our Standard Bearer Grand Event on October 21, 2011.
Mr. Blyleven kept attendees engaged with stories of his career in baseball and his philosophies on life. His stories ranged from humorous to touching, each one entertaining! He took time to answer attendee questions and took a genuine interest in the things our guests asked him.
Mr. Blyleven was also gracious enough to sign baseballs for all of our attendees. Our guests went home with a memento from a “Hall-of-Famer” and couldn’t have been more pleased.
I would highly recommend Mr. Blyleven to groups who are looking for a top-notch speaker!
