It’s Your Turn, Coach

It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else. One of my favorite movies on keeping your dream alive is about a baseball player from Brownwood Texas. “The Rookie” is a movie based on the true story about Jim Morris, who had a brief, but famous major league baseball career in 1999. The film stars Dennis Quaid, Rachel Griffiths, Jay Hernandez, and Brian Cox.

“After an unsuccessful minor league experience, Jim Morris takes a job as a high school coach. While coaching baseball for the Reagan County Owls in the spring of 1999, Morris made a promise to his team that he would try out for Major League Baseball if his team won the District Championship, something the team had never accomplished before. His team won the title, and the players each approach the coach after the game and said “It’s your turn, Coach” – Morris kept his end of the bargain by attending a Tampa Bay Devil Rays tryout. The scout wasn’t interested in Morris, but gave him a tryout solely to let Morris keep his promise to his players. Surprisingly, Morris discovered that in spite of his age, and having several surgeries on his arm, he was able to throw 12 consecutive 98-mph fastballs. After much debate with his family, Morris signed a professional contract with the Devil Rays organization at the age of 35.” Source:
