Clint Seymour was one of the good ones. We met Clint while working at a bar/restaurant called SoHo, on the North Shore of Pittsburgh. He came to us a young man fresh out of college, new to the service industry- willing to work hard and learn quickly. Clint was always brimming to the (notably big) ears with life. He inspired us all to be better people, to laugh harder, make lasting personal connections, and live life with few boundaries. Clint was good at pretty much everything that he tried his hand in, but baseball was his real passion. Growing up, Clint played baseball in many forums: travel leagues, youth ball, high school, and even through college at EKU. He had natural talent, and through his time on the ball field made many lasting friendships while learning a great deal about life. In 2012 he ran the Pittsburgh marathon just simply to "run 26 for his 26th" with almost no training.
We lost Clint tragically in the spring of 2014 days before his 28th birthday. Although we miss him terribly each hour of each day since he passed, his legacy lives on through charity. The Clint Seymour "Play Ball" Fund benefits youth baseball in both Pittsburgh and his final resting place, Charleston, South Carolina. Please join us in remembering our beloved friend as we train for the 2015 Pittsburgh Half Marathon. Please also visit the fund’s website, www.clintplayball.com, to learn more about the cause!
