If you love a great sports comeback then you are going to love this interview with Jimmy “The Rookie” Morris. Yea, I said it. Jimmy Morris! On this episode I sit down with Jim and he recounts his childhood and Father that didn’t support him at all in his baseball career. His career ended early due to some arm injuries until….
Until one day he was throwing batting practice to his High School Baseball Team and they noticed how hard he was throwing the ball. Soon after they all made a deal that if they won Districts then he had to go try out for the minor leagues.
Jim ended up making his Major League Baseball debut on September 18, 1999 striking out Royce Clayton of the Texas Rangers.
Nowadays, Jimmy is motivational speaker for corporations and all other events. He is also a published author and just released his second book called Dream Makers.
