THE KING is best known for hitting numerous postseason, playoff and World Series home runs that either won, tied or changed the momentum of several series.

He has worked for ESPN and hosted his own radio show on MLB.com from 2004 to 2007. His on air approach is considered forthright, sometimes brutally honest, and somewhat controversial. His vast relationships and respect garnered from today’s players allows Jim to delve into topics that the average interviewer could not. Jim is constantly in the public eye and spends his time doing motivational speaking, personal appearances, VIP Meet-and-Greets, corporate and fundraising golf events, Christian causes and youth baseball clinics and camps. There is no topic that Jim won’t take on.
