Speaker profile: Doug Gordon

It is a funny story. I am a failed baseball player. I was blessed with a gift to throw a baseball exceptionally fast. As a sophomore in High School I was already being scouted by colleges and MLB teams. My average fastball at that time was between 96-98 mph. That is incredibly hard for a major league pitcher. As a 15 year old it was crazy. With that being said I wasn’t a great student. I didn’t think I needed to be. I graduated High School with a GPA of 74 and scored 880 on the SAT of which 800 was for signing my name. I love the game of baseball and really thought I was set. With all that going on my parents worked a lot and I didn't get to see them often . My dad worked 2 jobs, plus shot weddings on the weekend. The only time I got to see him was when I would go and assist him. I was 11 years old, had no idea what I was doing, but I made $40 a day.
