Gigante: Playing Baseball with ADHD [Documentary]

A new documentary is soon to be released about Andrés Torres the center fielder for the New York Mets.

The video will document the life of Andrés, how he came from humble means, found rejection, mockery, and disappointment, and struggled for 10 years in the minors before becoming a major league baseball player. In addition to battling for a chance to to make a major league roster Andrés battles constantly with ADHD, a condition that makes it hard for him to focus on and off the field

Andrés has developed strategies and support systems that helped him to become a key player in the San Francisco Giants’ 2010 World Series win. His story inspires hope and motivates others to embrace their own challenges and never give up on their dreams.
