Second baseman for the Miami Marlins, Neil Walker shares the humbling, first-hand stories of his climb into the Major Leagues.

Drafted by his hometown at only 18 years old, the Pittsburgh Pirates, he explains the pressure of growing up in the MLB while finding his own path and maintaining a long successful career (10 years).

He tells us about how Roberto Clemente saved his life before he was born, how his eerie connection with Roberto followed him into his baseball career and why he is thankful for an early injury that changed his mindset and the trajectory of his career.

The Pittsburgh Kid’s miracle stories of his family and motivating statements of bettering yourself to reach your dream are something you don’t want to miss out on.
