PERSONAL
For years, Jim coached youth baseball and he still has strong opinions on teaching hitting and smart defense. He was also an avid golfer, whose attempt to find it in the dirt was blocked by a bum left shoulder. Now, his Saturday mornings are spent on a bike searching for speed and trying not to get dropped.
