Toole's new "9 in 9" book serves as an inspiration to all
There are more than two million Little League baseball players in the United States. Of that two million, 25,000 will play at the collegiate level and 1,500 will be drafted. The odds of breaking into professional ball are slim. The odds of becoming a professional ballplayer and a published author are even slimmer. Somehow, Justin Toole has managed both before the age of 30. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently sat down with the Indians prospect to get his thoughts on his new book and his 2013 season.
