Training Mental Toughness with Tim Sexton

"I went to George Washington College my freshman year. Transferred to Miami dade junior college. I was gonna be going to College of Charleston but I got drafted by the Dodgers in the 25th round in 2007. I worked my way up to triple-A with the Los Angeles dodgers. Then I bounced around between double A and triple A with the Kansas City Royals, Colorado Rockies, San Diego Padres, and Oakland Athletics. I Finished up by playing independant ball for southern Maryland Blue Crabs. When I got done playing, I got my degree in kinesiology from the University of Maryland. Now I’m working on a degree in cyber security. I occasionally train pitchers but it's not in an official capacity and it's only by reference."
