Steve Palermo's heartfelt talk is riveting, whether he's describing a face-to-face confrontation with Yankees manager Billy Martin or the moment gunshots were fired and struck him that horrific night on a Dallas street.

“When Life Made the Call” at age 41, it altered Steve's personal and professional life. Instantly, he was transformed from an energetic, best-in-the-game big league umpire to a paralyzed, bed-ridden man trying to regain use of his body. Subsequently, he talks about overcoming the odds against his ability to walk again. Steve's wife, Debbie, complements his story with her altered role from newlywed to daily caregiver and as Steve's primary support mechanism.

He talks about what drives him to keep reaching for the ultimate goal ... in his case, to walk unaided and to umpire again.

It is tragic and miraculous ... a feel-good story from a genuine, engaging personality.
