Mt. Lebanon native Brian Cuban tackles male eating disorders through ‘Image’

BrianCuban(Pittsburgh Tribune Review) Like many boys in the ‘Burgh, Brian Cuban idolized Roberto Clemente and played on a Little League team as an adolescent. The Mt. Lebanon native cherishes the memory of hitting a grand slam in his first game.

But that elation later turned to humiliation when Cuban’s coach announced the 200-pound boy would run faster if he pretended he was “chasing a refrigerator to first base.”

“In a moment, I had gone from being a revered power hitter to being called out for what I really was: a fat slob. The illusion was no more,” writes Cuban, now 53, brother of famed entrepreneur Mark Cuban.
