Leadercast 2019 Flexcast in Houston
Local Houston Keynote Speaker at Leadercast
Jon Peters, Speaker - Author - Coach
Jon shares a story of "There is Hope...When Dreams Collaspe and New Dreams Come."
When Life Grabs You by the Baseballs
In his book, When Life Grabs You by the Baseballs, Jon shares the secrets he’s learned to living a happy life. The message is universal: "no matter what dreams you've lost or what demons you’re battling, you too can find that same hope, happiness, and purpose."
Jon Peters, local to the Houston community is known for being United States’ record holder for the most consecutive wins (fifty-three) by a high school pitcher in 1989. Since the age of six Jon knew he wanted to play baseball. His lifelong dream was to be the best pitcher in the world.
His high school career concluded with a record of fifty-four wins and one loss, along with three consecutive Class 4A State Baseball Championships.
He became the first high school baseball player to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated and has appeared on local and national media such as CNN, Good Morning America, The Today Show, ESPN, People, The Wall Street Journal, Houston Chronicle, and Dallas Morning News.
Following his high school baseball career, Jon attended Texas A&M University on a baseball scholarship. Enduring four arm surgeries and months of rehabilitation in his college career, Jon had to give up his dream of pitching and instead became an undergraduate assistant coach at A&M. With his assistance in directing, the 1993 A&M team secured the Southwest Conference Title and a berth in the College World Series. His coaching career also extended to Blinn College and McMurry University.
