An Improbable Life
We all have limitations. It’s what you do with them that matters. Jim Abbott was born without a right hand but that did not stop him from fulfilling his dream of becoming a major league baseball pitcher! Jim was an All-America hurler at Michigan; won the Sullivan Award in 1987; was the pitcher for the Gold Medal Olympic Team in 1988; and threw a 4-0 no-hitter for the New York Yankees. Jim played for 10 seasons and ended his big league playing career in 1999. Jim has worked with The Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy on several initiatives encouraging businesses to hire people with disabilities. Jim is the author of the book, Imperfect: An Improbable Life.
You may know his story from the movie, The Rookie, starring Dennis Quaid. Jim Morris, was a high school teacher and baseball coach that in an attempt to motivate his team, made a bet with his kids: if you win a district championship, I’ll go tryout for a major league team. The bet was born. And with it so was The Rookie. Three months later, 35-year-old school teacher Jim Morris was striking out big league hitters in front of his high school players and family. The movie, The Rookie, won the ESPY for Sports Film of the Year, and Sports Illustrated voted it one of the five greatest baseball films ever made. Jim is the author of The Rookie.
