In 1983, as his baseball career was taking off, Steve was dealt with a horrible challenge - self doubt and paralyzing anxiety. It stemmed from a mental block he had developed early in the season and he was on the verge of losing his career, and boyhood dream, in front of a national viewing audience at the age of twenty three.
