In this episode learn how persistence has paid off and how failing is just part of the sport he made his life.

- How many years he spent in the minors before getting his call up to the Majors
- His coaching style with the Minnesota Twins Minor League team
- Who inspires him now
- Why he has the most famous a$$ in the world

I interviewed Tommy before the Fitness on Fire concept was born. Don’t worry though, we will have baseball specific training in the future.
