Dempster, a native Canadian, spent 16 seasons in Major League Baseball as a pitcher, most notably with the Chicago Cubs and the Boston Red Sox, with whom he won a World Series in 2013. Dempster made two All-Star teams over his career, in 2000 and 2008. Dempster retired and took a position in the Cubs’ front office following the 2013 World Series. Through the Dempster Family Foundation, which was inspired by his daughter Riley who was born with DiGeorge Syndrome, Dempster was and is still dedicated to improving the lives of those and their families affected by DiGeorge Syndrome.
Dempster and his Foundation continued to raise awareness that led to greater education and advocacy. Dempster is currently a studio analyst on MLB Network, where he provides insights on current events across the game, and he also serves as a part of the Cubs front office. Dempster can also be heard from time to time doing impressions of the late revered Cubs announcer Harry Carey.
