Wirz will talk about his three decades in the ups and downs of running his own sports public relations and marketing company.  Along the way, he fell in love with--and wrote about-- the touching stories of undrafted players who worked their way from the smallest of Independent baseball leagues to major league baseball fame and financial security.
