Dave Dravecky - Two Comebacks
 
02:53
https://www.bigspeak.com/speakers/dave-dravecky/ David Dravecky is an American former professional baseball player, a motivational speaker, and an author. He played Major League Baseball for the San Diego Padres (1982–87) and San Francisco Giants (1987–89). In 1988, Dave was at the top of his game peak of his career. His opening day victory over the Dodgers was overshadowed later that fall by the discovery of cancer and the removal of half of the deltoid muscle in my pitching arm. After battling cancer in his pitching arm, he came back a year later to defy the odds and pitch once again in the Major Leagues. Despite being told by my doctors, “Short of a miracle, you’ll never pitch again,” he pitched a 4-3 win for the San Francisco Giants that day. His comeback was short-lived. Five days later, he threw “…the pitch that could be heard round the world.” His humerus bone had split in two - ending his season.
