“I think I’ll join the Air Force just like my dad.” That was Dave Veres’ plan after high school when he didn’t have a single offer from a college and figured his baseball career was done. Then a phone call came from a junior college coach and his path was completely altered. Dave went on to pitch for Mount Hood Community College, got drafted and spent 17 years in Major League Baseball between the minors and the majors. There were numerous trades, injuries and a couple releases. There were also lifelong relationships, heartache when his best friend and teammate passed away and figuring out how to be the best husband and father to four kids who were usually in another city. Dave persevered.

In retirement, Dave works as a gas and electric utility broker for Last Mile Advisors, co-owns Bandit Energy Solutions and is the pitching coach at Cherry Creek High School in Denver. He’s also added “Grandpa” to his list of family titles.
