Fleet management: No obstacle is too big to overcome for Jim Abbott. After being born with only one hand, the pursuit to making it to the major leagues did not deter him. At this year’s 65th annual Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, through stories, anecdotes, jokes, and even some self-deprecation, Abbott will share how he overcame perceived limitations and achieved his dreams.

As the first baseball player to win the Sullivan Award as the nation's outstanding amateur athlete in 1987, Abbott went on to represent Team USA, win a silver medal at the Pan-American Games and the US Baseball Federation's Golden Spikes award as the best amateur player in the country. In the 1988 Olympics, he was the winning pitcher in a victory that brought the U.S. its first gold medal in baseball. Drafted after graduating from college, Abbott went on to play for ten seasons on four different teams.
