J.R. went from bein' one of the most dominant pitchers
in baseball, to losin' feelin' in his arm and havin' a stroke,
to not bein' able to play baseball anymore, to goin' broke
and gettin' divorced and endin' up homeless.
When he went ahead and hit rock bottom, J.R. decided
"I'm not going to do the same old things and act old way
cause God is right here, so — and I just simply changed
my thinking and didn't accept the negativity."
He turned himself back around and became a minister
and started workin' with the homeless.
The guy had every reason to quit, but kept on.
