Young men and women everywhere have dreams, but for most individuals, those dreams fall by the wayside as life’s demands unfold. That’s what happened to Jim Morris, a 35 year old high school science teacher and baseball coach who saw his life transformed when his team presented him with a bet: We win the district championship and you find a pitching tryout. They did and he did, leading to the 2002 movie about his life called, The Rookie. Morris presented his inspirational story at the Tri State Grain Growers Convention held in Spokane in November. In episode 156 & 157 entitled: Pitching Lessons From Life, The Rookie Speaks! listen in as Morris describes what it means to make dreams come true.
