As a result of a birth defect, Jim was born with only one hand but that didn`t deter him from following his dream of being a professional pitcher.
Here are a few of his accomplishments:
- pitcher for the Gold Medal Olympic Team in 1988;
- threw a 4-0 no-hitter for the New York Yankees versus Cleveland (September 4, 1993).
Instead of choosing to focus on what he didn`t have, Jim turned his attention towards the things he did have and refused to be defined by his missing right hand.
As a motivational speaker, Jim joins the next episode of HCL Radio to talk to about his playing career, how he personally overcame obstacles and what kinds of things motivated him to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional baseball player.
