Episode Description

Today's episode is the Path Through Pro Ball with Mike Pinto, current Manager for the Southern Illinois Miners of the Frontier League.  

Apologies for this episode running a bit longer than usual, but we just could not stop listening to Mike Pinto! He truly provided us with a unique point of view stemming from his experience as a Corporate Motivational Speaker for Fortune 500 Companies, a drummer, and of course his impressive resume as a Manager in Professional Baseball for the last 15 years.

So chop this episode into little pieces, or just set aside an hour to take it all in - either way just make sure you listen carefully to learn from Pinto's:

  • Grind Story about taking advantage of the opportunities presented to you.
  • Covering The Bases on how you can handle your baseball career (and life) life a professional. 
  • And his Inside the Clubhouse look at what he calls 'The 5 Stages of the Independent League Player'.

Please keep in mind this episode was recorded in the back in March, so developments such as the Souther Illinois Miner's season being canceled for 2020 are not addressed in this episode. 

Make sure you tune in next Monday, July 27th, for the next episode of Baseball Brilliance, in which we will be doing the Path Through Pro Ball for former Pitching Coach for the Miami Marlins Organization.

Until then, we'll catch you next time.
