Thom Shipley experienced great success as a high school baseball player. He was blessed with the opportunity to play Division One college baseball and even spent a summer season as a teammate of Baseball Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, on an all-star high school baseball team. He had aspirations of playing professionally but injuries cut his dreams short. His story shows us that happiness is there for the taking even when things don’t go as planned.
