Then came the bet.
Jim's young players had a proposition for their coach: If they won the league championship - something their school had never done - he'd try out for a major-league team. Jim laughed, knowing he was way too old to be considered by a professional squad, but he accepted.
Well, they won. And what happened next surprised everyone, especially Jim Morris. Keeping his end of the bet, he headed off to try out for the major leagues. There, he threw faster and better than he had ever thrown before. Suddenly, Jim Morris was reborn. A few months later, he took the mound at Texas Stadium and became the major leagues' oldest rookie pitcher in 40 years. You must hear this story to believe it.

I love audible, because honestly I don't have the time or the attention span to sit and read! I love true crime, and romantic comedies most
Great feel good story! My teenage son loved this one too.
A story about never giving up, and always being your best.
He was a great narrator, he has an awesome voice.
