Sumary: The first of four episodes derived from a Skype interview with coach Gil Patterson who shares some intimate history with his career in baseball. Coach Gil was first round draft pick five times! Once right out of high school and then after some college experience with three other teams before signing with his dream team, the New York Yankees. Gil played with some of baseball histories all-time greats during their famed 1977 World Series. But all was not roses and ticker-tape parades. He shares what happens when injury takes you out of the game, and a creative solution that returned him to the game he loves.
