How to win like the Yankees with Mike “Hardball” Hardge

Mike “Hardball” Hardge was a 2nd round draft pick of the Montreal Expos in 1990. He went on to play 13 years with the Boston Red Sox, Cardinals & the New York Yankees organizations.  He is the co-host of "The Bottom Line" and does commentating for the Round Rock Express, AAA affiliate of the Houston Astros.

Mike was an integral part to the memorable 1993 team that won 100 games that was documented in the book "The Class of '93: How One Team Wrecked the Eastern League." He shares about the only time in professional baseball when his teammate, Tyrone Horn hit a 1 run, 2 run, 3 run & grand slam home run (that bat is in the Baseball Hall of Fame). Part of the discussion covers how to deal with injury and how to keep being of value to your team. Mike's passion for the game is infectious as he explains "the process" in the game and how coaches should work with kids. 

Mike lives in Austin with his wife and 3 kids.
