Q & A with Jim Abbott, Author of Imperfect: An Improbable Life

Jim Abbott was an All-American at Michigan, gold medalist with the 1988 U.S. Olympic baseball team, and major league pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees, among other teams. He was also born without a right hand. Abbott’s perseverance in pursing his dream — playing professional baseball — is the subject of his memoir IMPERFECT: AN IMPROBABLE LIFE. In this audiobook, which Abbott narrates, he retraces his amazing journey, including a pitch-by-pitch personal account of his dramatic no-hitter in 1993 at Yankee Stadium, and provides inspiration to all. Listen to a clip of co-author Tim Brown interview Abbott on what he has learned from his career (both highs and lows), how he overcame adversity, and about the infamous no-hitter that cemented him into baseball history.
