Jim Morris’ Cinderella story is testimony to the power of dreams and their ability to inspire and transform human life. His life story is the subject of the Walt Disney film “The Rookie”, starring Dennis Quaid. As a high school baseball coach, he made a bet with his players that if they won the championship, he would try out for the major leagues. Jim then went to an open tryout, where he changed diapers and then went out and threw 12 consecutive pitches at 98 mph to the amazement of scouts in attendance. People at the age of 35 aren’t supposed to throw 98 mph. After some heated discussion with his family, Jim signed a pro contract to play baseball at the age of 35. Jim is much more than just a sports personality. A school teacher by trade, Jim is a polished speaker but never slick. Audiences connect with him because he’s one of them. In a world lacking in real-life heroes, Jim’s message about following your dreams and keeping your promises resonates with audiences.
