Luke Hagerty. A name you might hear a few times during the upcoming baseball season. Luke Hagerty

 

What's so special is the fact he is 37 years old and throwing 99...he is the ultimate comeback story for baseball.

 

The Cubs just signed him 17 years after they drafted him in the first round. A great story of perserverance, focus and luck. Here's the full background story from ESPN...great read (click here)

 

Before Luke the oldest guy to make a comeback was Jim Morris and he was 35. They even made a movie about him which starred Dennis Quaid.

 

I enjoy these feel good comeback stories. I'll be watching and rooting for him (except when they play NY teams:)

    Thank you. What an amazing story, and thank you for the link. Although not really a baseball enthusiast I will be watching and cheering for Luke.

    A remarkable story of determination, knowing what he wanted more than anything in the world, and keeping one’s eye on the call. Thank you Mitch!!!
