Clint Hurdle played in the big leagues for 10 years and managed another 17 with the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Hurdle began his professional career on a Sports Illustrated cover heralded as the “next big phenom”. That unwanted and unexpected spotlight helped create enormous expectations that led to personal struggles.
As a first time manager Hurdle led the Colorado Rockies to their first NL pennant in 2007. He was named manager of the year for the Pirates in 2013 where they reached the post season three consecutive seasons. Clint was hitting coach with the Rangers in 2010 when they won their first AL Pennant. It was with the Rangers that Clint met up with Emmy Award winning TV director Dave Burchett, who joins us on today’s podcast. Today they will share about their new project on leadership and faith.
Clint Hurdle is an inspirational and motivational story teller who doesn’t shy away from his difficult path to success and happiness.
