It’s not every day that you get to speak with a professional athlete. Especially one that nearly pitched a no-hitter game against the New York Yankees in their prime! Today’s guest is Mike Maroth. Mike’s professional baseball career spans over 28 years with six of those being in the major leagues. He was the starting pitcher for many of those games (over 100 to be exact), and after a few injuries, was forced to retire in 2011. He played many of his years with the Detroit Tigers and today he is still with the organization as a coach. He took some time out of his busy Spring Training schedule to speak to us about his time as a player in the big leagues, how he met his wife and contributor to Real IronDAD, Brooke, and how he balances his family life with a job that has him on the road many months out of the year.
