TC170: Jim “The Rookie” Morris

Jim Morris‘ story was well documented in the 2002 film, The Rookie, but Jim’s story is not yet finished. He started his career as a coach in a small Texas town, teaching his kids to dream big. It was his players who encouraged their coach to dream big. And that he did — following his dream all the way to the big leagues, with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Now Jim is teaching another generation to follow their dreams, as he travels the country, speaking to thousands each year.
