Ahh October baseball, the favorite of many. While the Cards take on the Rangers in the 2011 World Series, you can't help but look back at some of America's baseball greats..who just happen to be amazing motivational speakers.
Jim 'The Rookie' Morris-who made a promise to the high school team that he coached that he would try out for Major League Baseball if his team won the District Championship, just happened to sign a professional contract with the Devil Rays organization at the age of 35. While the subject of the award winning Disney film 'The Rookie', Jim is an accomplished speaker who is particularly good at weaving the needs of his customers into his presentation and works hard to please his customers. He receives standing ovations wherever he goes.
A school teacher by trade, Jim is a lovable storyteller who captivates and inspires others to step up and change their lives. His signature program, 'Never Give Up on a Dream', inspires those about second chances in life and overcoming obstacles.
