With a 25-year career as a sports executive that included stops at some of the United States' most prestigious and well-known athletic organizations, author Rick Bay was sure to have great stories.  And he did, so he put them into two books that give readers a unique and entertaining behind-the-scenes look.

Rick is following the successful release of his first book, FROM THE BUCKEYES TO THE BRONX, which received excellent reviews from sports and journalism pros, with his just-released new book, HAVE RESUME - WILL TRAVEL: MY NOMADIC LIFE AS A SPORTS EXECUTIVE.

With his recent trip that included an eventful stop in Antarctica, (the source for the photo at the top of the page), Rick has now traveled to 85 foreign countries, and all seven continents. Rick is seen here in front of Imam Mosque in Isfahan, Iran. 


Rick enjoyed a 25-year career as a sports executive, beginning at the University of Oregon, where he was Athletics Director.  That job was followed by positions as Athletics Director at The Ohio State University; COO at the New York Yankees; Athletics Director at the University of Minnesota; President of the Cleveland Indians; and Athletics Director at San Diego State University.  Rick faced many challenges at his jobs, but as he says, "I wouldn't trade one minute of those 25 years.  I was one lucky man."
