Ep. 5: Strength

Even as his body began to betray him as he grew older, Tim Harkins didn't stop challenging himself, he just changed the nature of the challenge. And that strength was both an example and a blessing for his family until the very end.

Ep. 1: Determination

In Episode 1 of Season 3, Bob Harkins tells the story of his father Tim: How he honed his determination at an early age and how he used that drive, which sometimes bordered on bullheadedness, to find success as an athlete. That trait would later be a key part of his personality that he brought to his battle with cancer.

He was an athlete, a leader and a mentor. Most of all, he was my Dad.

We lost my father, Tim Harkins, to cancer in the spring of 2020.

He was a good person, an excellent father, a great man. But he wasn't a self-promoter, so I decided to do it for him. I decided that his story needed to be shared. Because quite frankly, the world could use more people like him.

Ep. 1 drops Sept. 14.

Ep. 3: 'They hunt pitches'

As Cole Uvila heads into May, he starts to experience some challenges for the first time as a professional baseball player, as the more experienced hitters in Advanced-A begin to “hunt” his pitches.

“The batters are much more disciplined. They have a little bit more of an approach," Cole says. "There's a lot of free swingers the younger guys get. They're a little bit more free swingers. Now I'm facing guys 23, 24, 25 years old with some experience. They hunt pitches.”

He knows he has to make some changes -- he can know longer rely on simply throwing his fastball past people. So he goes to work to refine his game.
