“Those look like catcher’s hands,” I blurted out. It was an odd statement to make to a cab driver for sure, but it was the start of something amazing. “Yes I was,” he replied. Turns out the 70-year old man behind the wheel was a former professional player in the Negro Leagues.
The driver was a raving fan of the Cleveland Indians but had never seen his hometown team play live. Because I was coaching nine players on the team, I had tickets to the American League playoff game that evening.
I’ll never forget how the driver’s jaw dropped when I offered him enough cash to cover the earnings from his shift so he could attend the game with me. We sat behind home plate and discussed the nuances of the game under the lights of Jacobs Field.
So who got more out of this unexpected, once-in-a-lifetime event? I would argue that I’m the one who benefited most. Because nothing enhances your life like kindness. On this episode of the Jim Fannin Show, I’m going to walk you through the tips to spread kindness and positivity not just during the holiday season, but all year long.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
