Mike Norris, a 1st Round draft pick by the Oakland Athletics in 1973, opens up about his life on and off the diamond in this transparent book about his life. In "Blackballed Twice", Norris wrote a great tribute honoring Mohammad Ali. In addition, he goes into great detail about a disease Sarcoidosis that has plagued our community. He also journals the behind the scenes of a professional baseball player's life challenges. Even though he had fame and material status, Norris gave into the woes of drug addiction during moments in his profession. Norris also chronicles his many awards and accolades as a baseball player. "This book was written to inspire and educate the readers about the challenges we go through before we reach our champion status in life," said Norris, who is currently mentoring the youths in his business A Pitch To Success in Oakland, California.
