Most people know Jim Abbott as the one-handed pitcher. He also pitched a no hitter in Yankee Stadium. But his story is so much more. I like the way the book was written, one chapter of background, then a chapter in the no-hitter game. It is the story how his parents always supported him, but made no excuses for him, challenges growing up and exiting baseball.He always made time to visit with the kids who would come to see him at the game. They had their own handicaps and he was a role model for them.
I had a chance to see Jim at a booksigning. He was inspirational to listen too.
