Steve Beck Weekly Motivational Series
Baseball season is getting started - it’s a good time to consider the example set by baseball great Nolan Ryan, who was a pitcher for the Texas Rangers. Ryan had thrown six no-hitters – a HUGE deal in baseball. He was 44 years old, and he was a month into his 25th season.
He left his house that day with a blister on his middle finger – his pitching hand. He had a bad back. And he said to his wife before he left the house, “Honey, I’m feeling old today.” That day, he threw his seventh no-hitter.
Here are some questions we can all ask ourselves:
Do you have a blister on your throwing hand today? Your throwing finger?
You got a bad back?
You feel old today?
C’mon. Let's work on pitching our own no-hitter today…or maybe even a perfect game.
You work on it. I’ll work on it. Today, tomorrow, the whole week.
Let’s do this!
See you next week.
