The Hero Being

We were commissioned by Blood and Ethos to tell the story of San Francisco Giants pitcher Noah Lowry's life after baseball the destruction that can ensue if not handled properly. He has worked with an organization called “The Revenant Process” a program of Blood & Ethos to help him take new steps, redefine his life’s meaning and deal with what came next. A father of three, he also gives his time to Bay Area youth in various capacities. In a video he shared, Lowry opens up about how losing baseball brought back anxieties from his childhood that kept him from developing close friendships.

NO OPENING DAY: EX-MAJOR LEAGUERS STRUGGLE WITH RETIREMENT

For Lowry, four surgeries on his troublesome pitching arm sent the lefty into retirement at age 26 after parts of just five seasons. It took time to deal with the sadness and anger of his situation, the shame, the depression. He called the transition to his next chapter “a disorienting and chaotic experience.”

“In a moment, my identity crumbled, who I thought I was, the man my wife thought she had married, fell apart. The innocence of my childhood turned to shame as I grew older,” he shared. “... Leaving the majors was the final crack in the dam that had been holding back years of pent-up anger, doubt and fear.”
