Eric Byrnes was an electric baseball player who spent 11 years in the major leagues. He’s the latest guest on the Give Me a Sense podcast. He shares some great stories from playing in the bigs - the highs and lows and the run in he had with A’s GM Billy Beane in the parking lot after he was sent down to the minors. Byrnes has made the successful transition from baseball to a new sport; he competes as an ultra marathon runner. Eric created a documentary on running the Western States Endurance Run, which is a 100 mile race completed in 1 day.
It’s an amazing story which includes hallucinations, torn up feet and Lance Armstrong. You can find the documentary on vimeo here:
All portion of the proceeds go to the Pat Tillman Foundation.
