Special 65th birthday present gives voice to a winning baseball team

October 11, 2009


When varsity baseball coach Jack Richardson said goodbye to his seniors at his team’s annual award celebration, it also happened to be his 65th birthday. On that meaningful day, he received a nostalgic 65th birthday gift that was far more personal than any baseball plaque his players or fellow coaches could ever give him. He received a keepsake CD filled with the voices of his colleagues, his graduating players, and their parents, expressing their thanks and warm wishes. The recordings ranged from funny to sentimental, and demonstrated to him how much he had meant to the Cougars.

“I go out there and urge my players to give it their all every day. I’ve always focused on the team, and when they gave me this gift it demonstrated how much my coaching meant to them personally”.

The players and their parents wanted to give the coach a fun present that was very personal. But, with hectic schedules, the players and their parents knew that the group gift would have to be simple for everyone to contribute to.

The gift the coach received is called LifeOnRecord.

Team mom, Stacy Greenberg, got the idea when her husband gave her a LifeOnRecord CD as a nostalgic birthday gift.

The process is simple: friends and family call a toll-free number and are directed to record a favorite memory, wish, or story. There’s no limit on the number of callers that can phone-in or on the total number of recordings you receive. The recordings can be downloaded for free using iTunes so that you can make your own CD, or LifeOnRecord can create a keepsake CD with a personalized label and metal case. An unlimited plan with free download capability into iTunes costs $49.99, or an unlimited plan with a keepsake CD costs $74.98.

It is a unique, affordable service that allows you to create a highly personal gift with ease.

“My players mean the world to me, and this is the perfect way for me to remember them and their impact after my coaching days are over. The mom who organized and put this together is my hero”.

If you’d like to be a hero to your loved one, you can purchase LifeOnRecord and give them a creative birthday gift.
