I spoke with J Hall, better know as Gizmo, during planting season on his farm.  He is not only growing crops but the lives of young people through Pickleball.  Gizmo also talks about his growing up in the inner city, what he feels his purpose in life is, and why he wears colorful outfits on the court.  This is a must listen to episode as Gizmo’s story is so inspirational.
