Let's Get Personal: Paths to Meaningful Individualized Learning
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Personalization in education is a hot topic. Conferences on blended or personalized learning are huge draws. The EdTech space is filled with products and promises. So how does a teacher or parent or district leader separate hype from promising strategies? Let's start with a basic premise: personalization is not a pedagogy (a theory and method for teaching and learning). Simply adding technology tools to old school models will at best reproduce better 'old' outcomes, and we ask is that what we want for students today? Take a look at this great article by Tim Hudson on why less instructional time will solve the math problem we have in this country. We think the aim of "personalized learning" should be to move students through increasing levels of independence and self-direction while addressing critical knowledge and skills development. To achieve true personalization as an outcome for all students, we believe in a focus on the whole school design and on changing district and state po ...

Yahoo News - over 2 years
- - - Athletics 6, Giants 1 Scott Kazmir continues to make hay while the sun shines, the left-hander enjoying another dominant daytime performance by striking out nine and allowing the San Francisco Giants just three hits over seven innings in Oakland's 6-1 victory.

First baseman Stephen Vogt drove in three runs with two singles and third baseman Josh Donaldson belted a two-run homer for the A's, who won the Bay Bridge series 3-1. - - - Indians 9, Yankees 3 Asdrubal Cabrera's bases-loaded triple highlighted a four-run Cleveland seventh inning, and Roberto Perez and Carlos Santana each hit two-run home runs to highlight a five-run eighth, as the Indians rallied past the New York Yankees 9-3.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner deserves Opening Day start
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 3 years
The Giants said Bumgarner canceled because of a sinus infection and an extremely sore throat, which is fine with them. Bumgarner led the rotation in wins (13), innings (201 1/3 ), strikeouts (199) and WHIP (1.03) and was the saving grace in a group that ranked 13th in a 15-team league in ERA after ranking in the top five the previous four seasons. Cain was last season's Opening Day starter after enjoying a career year in 2012, which happened to be the first off year for Lincecum, whose string of four straight Opening Day starts ended. The Giants play at Dodger Stadium in the second series, and the decision-making will take into account the Evil Empire of the West. The Giants' eighth game is the home opener (a D'backs rematch), and that assignment would fall to the No. 3 pitcher, either Lincecum or the guy with the most career Opening Day starts - Tim Hudson, with six. To announce anything now would be premature because health is part of the equation, and that'll play out in spring ...

Follow the Chronicle at SF Giants FanFest

The Chronicle is at SF Giants media day today and Giants FanFest tomorrow, where they’ll be filing stories and taking lots of photos. Some early notes, especially for those going to FanFest: Tim Hudson won’t be there, due to Atlanta’s weather conditions. Nor will Madison Bumgarner, who  is sick. Other no-shows will include Pablo Sandoval, Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan. The good news? Hudson is expected to throw bullpen sessions with teammates as soon as spring training starts. Scutaro is said to be doing well. Pablo looks good from afar. New Giant Michael Morse says he feels “120 percent.” Buster Posey says he gained 10 pounds of “good weight” in [...]

Giants GM Brian Sabean on left field, Brandon Belt staying put and the return of Ryan Vogelsong
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
Just got off a conference call with Brian Sabean and Ryan Vogelsong, whose one-year, $5 million contract became final after he passed his physical. Sabean stayed on course, saying the acquisition of a left fielder might not come soon — or might not be a major add. “We’re open-minded, but I’m not optimistic it’s going to be a big piece or anything earth-shattering,” he said. Sabean, who has suggested the missing piece might come in a trade, ruled out the top remaining free-agent outfielders, including Shin-Soo Choo and Carlos Beltran, reasoning the team spent considerably re-signing its own free agents, including Tim Lincecum, Hunter Pence, Javier Lopez and Vogelsong, plus Tim Hudson.

SF Giants announce Ryan Vogelsong deal, plus how much he will earn
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
The Giants on Friday announced their tentative deal to re-sign starter Ryan Vogelsong, apparently ending their quest to complete their 2014 rotation. Sources said the contract, which does not become official until Vogelsong passes a physical next week, is worth roughly $5 million, not that much less than the $6.5 million he would have earned had the Giants exercised his option. They paid him $300,000 to buy out the option. With incentives, Vogelsong can earn more than $6.5 million in 2014. The Giants are not expected to pursue another starter after signing Tim Lincecum, Tim Hudson and Vogelsong to join Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner. All three signees carry question Read More

Tim Hudson on the Oakland A’s
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
By John Shea So Tim Hudson, who signed with the Giants for two years and $23 million, made a case for returning to the A’s, the team for whom he played his first six seasons. “Oakland was a place I very seriously considered,” he said. “You’d be foolish not to want to play for a winner like that. They have a good ballclub over there and a front office that tries to do whatever it takes to win.” As Hudson said on Tuesday, signing with the Giants was about staying in the National League,  pitching in a nice park in front of a packed house and getting deep into the Read More

Hudson said several times he’s excited about joining the Giants, especially because it’s a chance to remain in the National League and pitch in a nice park for what he believes will be a contender. He said he got emotional over the A’s interest and praised GM Billy Beane but said the Giants were the right fit. The only Giant he has played with is Marco Scutaro, in Oakland.

He recorded his first career win in his next start, on June 13 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He allowed only one run in seven innings of the 9–3 victory. In his rookie season, Hudson had an 11–2 mark and finished 5th in the AL Rookie of the Year vote. He became a member of Oakland's so-called "Big Three", along with left-handed pitchers Mark Mulder and Barry Zito.

On April 29, 2007, both Hudson's grandmother and St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Josh Hancock, his college teammate at Auburn, died.
He drew his grandmother's initials on the pitcher's mound before his next start, and wore them on his spikes. He also sewed Hancock's initials (JH) on his jersey. He pitched 8 innings, giving up 2 earned runs against the Philadelphia Phillies. He did not get a decision, but the Braves ultimately won, 5–2.

2009
On July 2, 2009, he threw a 90-pitch bullpen session and Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox said: "He's ready to go....

But Cox added that the Braves would not rush the timetable on Hudson's return, which was scheduled for mid- to late-August. Hudson's first minor-league rehab start was tentatively scheduled for July 19 at Class A Myrtle Beach.

On July 24, 2013, Hudson was pitching a 4-hit shutout against the New York Mets when Eric Young, Jr., who was trying to beat a throw to first base, accidentally stepped on Hudson's leg above the ankle.
This resulted in an ankle fracture that ended Hudson's 2013 season.
After the season, Hudson became a free agent. His record with the Braves was 113–72 with an ERA of 3.56.
On November 18, 2013, Hudson agreed to a two-year, $23 million contract with the San Francisco Giants.

2015
Before retiring in 2015, Hudson was the winningest active Major League pitcher, as well as one of four active pitchers with at least 200 career wins.
With a win against the Oakland A's on July 26, 2015, he has won a game against every team in the majors, the 15th pitcher to do so.
Hudson is one of twenty-one pitchers in Major League history to win at least 200 games, strikeout 2,000 batters and have a win-loss percentage above .600. Of those twenty-one, fourteen are in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Prior to the 2015 season, Hudson stated it would likely be his last.
Following a 4-3 win against the Oakland Athletics on July 26, 2015, Hudson became the 15th pitcher in MLB history to register at least one win against all 30 current teams.
On September 26, 2015, Hudson started against Zito and the Athletics in a matchup that was arranged as a tribute to the A's "Big Three" of the early 2000s.
Both pitchers received lengthy standing ovations from the sold-out Oakland Coliseum crowd (which included the third Big Three member, Mulder) upon leaving the game. Hudson is a sinkerballer, using that pitch about half the time and at a speed of 87-91 mph. His next-most used pitch is a cutter at 84–87. He expands his repertoire to left-handers with a curveball (75-77) and splitter (78-81). He also has a four-seam fastball (88-91 mph). His favored pitch with 2 strikes to right-handed hitters is his cutter, while he stays with the sinker to lefties. Hudson is married to the former Kim Bruner, whom he met while a student at Auburn. The couple have two daughters, Kennedie and Tess, and one son, Kade. They currently live in Auburn, Alabama. Hudson is a Christian. Hudson has spoken about his faith saying, "It's been one of those things, where anybody that's played a sport at the professional level there's always a lot of challenges. And the one thing that's always been a constant for me is Jesus Christ and my faith... And not only that, but just being an example for other players, my teammates, my friends from home. You know I think it's one of those things where you need to be a beacon of light and just shine on people."
