Kissimmee Sticks and John Madden w/ Art of Baseball Experts

 

Oh yea!!!! Another wood bat contest give away! Many thanks to John Madden for sitting down with us for a sec to talk to us about the Kissimmee Sticks baseball bats! I have to be honest…I was really impressed with the fact that the Kissimmee Sticks are all hand crafted and provide the same select grade quality of wood that is available at the Major League level. Not a lot of wood bat companies can say that.

IMPORTANT: Mark sure you answer the question of the day! John and I will be picking a winner with the BEST question and that winner will receive a brand new Kissimmee Stick with your name branded on it!

Art of Baseball LIVE w/Adam Greenberg on courage

 

There are a handfull of reasons why I love this game. The history…..the allure of baseball legends. I love the stories as well. One story that sticks out in my mind as I contemplate the various ones I have witnessed is the Adam Greenberg story.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve probably heard it to.

Adam Greenburg was struck in the head on the first pitch of the first at-bat and first game in his big league career. He was one of two players in league history to be hit by a pitch in their first and only plate appearance without ever taking the field.

This all changed when he made his first plate appearance since that fateful day with the Florida Marlins.

It goes without saying that it takes a tremendous amount of courage to step back into the batters box after experiencing a 90 plus mph fastball to the head.

Fortunately we can ask him! Adam Greenburg will join us to share  what it’s like attempting to overcome a setback like this while exlplaing what his mentality is moving forward.

Do you have a question you’d like to ask him?

Make sure you join us LIVE on Thursday night so that you can ask your questions!

What’s your biggest take away from this interview?
