AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - With no major scholarship offers following his graduation from Glenwood High School in 1993, nothing deterred pitcher Tim Hudson from pursuing his dreams of a major league career - and it paid off.

In this special 1-on-1 interview, Hudson relives his times as a skinny teenager growing up in Columbus, GA, his time a Chattahoochee Valley Community College and at Auburn University, and his career as one of the best starting pitchers of his era in Major League Baseball with the Oakland A's, the Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants.

Hudson also reflects on his life after baseball, his family and the Hudson Family Foundation.
