One Base at a Time

David will share his inspiring life stories, experiences, and motivation that have lead him to where he is today. For example, soon after he graduated high school, David was hit by a car as he was entering a McDonald's restaurant. After the accident he thought not only was his leg crushed but so were his dreams of following his Grandfather’s path to the major leagues. By adapting the old baseball adage, “One Base at a Time” to a philosophy of life he was able to overcome numerous obstacles and setbacks, including PTSD, to accomplish his dream.
