Jim Abbott

Former Major League Baseball Pitcher
FEE RANGE: $15,000–$25,000 [FEE NOTE]
TRAVELS FROM: California
Overcoming the disability he was born with, Jim Abbott became a successful major league baseball pitcher who inspires audiences to adapt and reach their potential for personal and professional success. Born with only one hand, Jim Abbott persevered to not only pitch for Major League baseball, but skipped the minor leagues entirely to make his professional debut—only the 15th player in the history of the league ever to do so. He also pitched for Team USA, helping win America’s first Olympic Gold medal in baseball. Yet, despite his accomplishments, Abbott possesses one of the most humble and self-effacing demeanors you'll find, which endears him to audiences captivated by his amazing story. Today Jim Abbott is a professional motivational speaker. He has been featured in USA Today, Newsweek, Time, Sports Illustrated, Parade Magazine, People, and Baseball America.
