Wednesday Watch: Jim Abbott

Karen Viotti
Wednesday, Nov 07, 2018

25 years ago Jim Abbott, born with only one hand, took the mound at Yankee Stadium and threw nine no-hit innings against a talented Cleveland Indians squad. Using this no-hitter as the lens, Fox Sports tells the deeper story of the struggles, doubts and fight that led Jim to that day, and his life since in their exclusive interview and film “Set Apart: The Jim Abbott Story”.

As a professional motivational speaker, Abbott shares how he was able to overcome perceived limitations and reach his dreams. He encourages audiences to find something they love and to go after it with all their heart. His story has been featured in numerous magazines including Time and Sports Illustrated; and he has appeared on several shows including ESPN, Good Morning America, CNN, and now– FOX.

Although “Set Apart” originally aired on October 14, it is still available On Demand. We encourage our clients to watch Jim’s truly inspiring story. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to check Jim’s availability for your next event, call Executive Speakers Bureau at (901) 754-9404.
