Originally drafted in the 1st round in 1984, Jim’s childhood dream of becoming a Major League Baseball player was derailed by serious arm injuries. At the age of 35, Jim went to an open tryout where he threw 12 consecutive pitches at 98 mph to the amazement of scouts in attendance. Jim signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and returned to Texas as a major league player, striking out Texas Rangers all-star Royce Clayton with a 98 mile per hour fastball in his first big league game. Jim retired again from baseball in the winter of 2001 and co-authored his autobiography, The Oldest Rookie, published that same year. As a speaker, Jim inspires and motivates audiences to never give up on their dreams.
