Nick Mahin grew up in Long Beach California always dreaming of playing baseball for the Cal State Fullerton Titans. After many years of hard work, training, and a couple of different colleges he got his opportunity to live his childhood dream by playing for Cal State, and ultimately hitting a home run in the College World Series for the Titans.
In that same year, 2007, Nick was drafted in the 16th Rd of the MLB Draft by the Chicago White Sox. After battling his way through the minors for seven years he realized it was time to give up on his dream of becoming a major leaguer, and moved to Idaho.
After bouncing around from different jobs, nick found himself drinking his life away as his truest love of his life had broken up with him, baseball. After a life changing accident he has kicked his addiction to alcohol to the curb and has become the Head Baseball Coach of the Coeur d’Alene High School Vikings.
Nick is a true inspiration to anyone who has battled the disease, and shares his story with us. Sit back, and enjoy!
