Coach Caliendo has a discussion with Dustin Pease, founder of Lokation
Nation. My story began in Baltimore, Maryland when I was in the 8th grade. I was an
extremely undersized left-handed pitcher, standing at 5'9 140 pounds who had
a relentless drive for the game of baseball and to be the best I could be. I
was regularly scrutinized by coaches . . . I wasn't big enough, strong
enough, or just downright good enough to compete at a higher level or even
the level I was at then. I sat the bench quite often in my youth due to my
physicality. My 68-mph “fastball” was written off by many coaches heading
into high school, which only fueled my passion.
