Jim Morris

In the latest episode of Tuesdays With Leroy, Chris Vitali sits down with Jim “The Rookie” Morris.

From coaching a West Texas high school team to trying out for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at age 35, making the team and having Disney make a movie about his life, Jim Morris’ story is as inspirational as it is improbable.

So come check out the story of “The Oldest Rookie” as told by the man himself.

If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll learn about the man behind it.

And if you haven’t… well you’ll definitely want to see it after this.

Chris is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of BallNine and was the other half of the battery for the 1986 Belleville Recreation Farm League Champion Indians. He sometimes answers to "Willie Randolph Hearst". After a few years as a touring musician he decided to become a Chef, a position he held until the industry almost killed him. Now he likes to spend his time talking about the absurdities of baseball and training his army of attack squirrels in the yard of his California home.
