Dylan Holton continues to capitalize on new opportunity presented his way as he is a big hit at a major banquet in Western Canada. It was the Celebration of Baseball Banquet presented by Today's Country 95-5 and B-93 in the city of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. The banquet is nothing new to Holton as he attended this baseball banquet a few years in a row during his collegiate baseball career in the past.
"It was an absolute pleasure to invite Holton as the guest speaker at our annual function this year. We have tried to get him in the past and with his busy touring schedule, we somehow booked him in this year", the General Manager of Alberta Baseball Kevin Kvame stated. "Holton was always a guy to watch on the field during his baseball career and now seeing him take a new direction with music doesn't surprise me one bit. He's a talent and we are proud to label him as an alumni of our program".
Holton complimented dinner during the banquet with a number of songs people would be familiar with and followed it with a special message to the young players in today's baseball program as well as a few originals to top off the night.
"It's amazing to think I use to be in these kids cleats at one point in time. When you are in the moment, especially with baseball, you just never think it is going to end," said Holton. "I wanted to reiterate to the kids to always give your best effort on the field but also to stay focused on school as life is full of twists and turns." Holton preached the meaning of "doing what you love in life" in which he expressed if you do what you love with great passion and dedication and because you absolutely love it, then you will succeed.
Holton continues to shine light to others through inspiring words and music hoping to inspire those listening. Just another ray of sunshine to send your way; just make sure your jar is open to receive it.
