About Byron Embry
Byron T. Embry is CEO and Founder of Closing Remarks, LLC, a premier leadership development and communications organization. Byron has used his 12 years of experience as a professional baseball player to establish himself as an international speaker. He is regarded by many to be one of the most dynamic speakers in the world relating to leadership, personal and professional development.
As a "closer" during his baseball career, Byron learned early on that closers are generally the teams most dominate pitcher who is selected to pitch the last few outs of a game . . . when the game is on the line. Teams that win championships often have the most consistent closers. Byron has discovered that to be a champion in life is not much different - it takes passion, consistency and desire. "As a closer, you come in when the game is on the line," says Embry. "A closer makes certain that his team comes out ahead. Corporations, families and organizations do not need more leaders...they need more closers."

On August 4, 2006, closer Byron Embry became the seventh T-Bones player to have his contract purchased by a major league organization when the Seattle Mariners signed the formidable right-hander.
Embry was 29 during the 2006 season, and appeared in an equal number of games for the T-Bones before leaving for Seattle's Double-A affiliate. In his time with Kansas City, Embry went 4-2 with 14 saves and a 1.27 ERA while posting a 1.08 WHIP. In 35 and one-thirds innings, the former Atlanta Braves draft pick (35th round, 1996) allowed just 19 hits while striking out an impressive 51 batters against just 19 walks. His 14 saves is still the fourth-highest single-season total in franchise history.
Before joining the T-Bones in 2006, Embry made it to Class AAA Omaha while in the Royals system in 2005. He advanced to the Triple-A level again with Seattle in 2007, appearing in 25 games for the Tacoma Rainers.
Embry finished a 12-year professional career with Wichita of the independent American Association in 2008, going 3-1 with 20 saves and a 3.44 ERA. He again showed his ability to induce the strikeout as he posted 40 in just 36 and two-thirds innings. In his career, Embry averaged 11 K/9, striking out a total of 690 in just 564 and one-thirds innings.
He now works as a motivational speaker, traveling the country to help people overcome various obstacles in their life.
