In 2003, Jeff Allison was a high school senior in Peabody, MA with a 98 MPH fastball that helped him become the 2003 Baseball America High School Player of the Year. Jeff pitched an amazing 9-0 record with 0.00 ERA with 142 Strike Outs. He was taken in the 1st Round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Florida Marlins and given a $2 Million signing bonus. But Jeff’s world came crashing down as he struggled with addition to heroin and Oxycontin.
Join us as Jeff recounts his struggles – from a lengthy battle with addiction, to being penniless, homeless, incarcerated, and his struggle to regain normalcy on a road to recovery. Jeff has been sober for 12 years and his story is one that shouldn’t be missed.
