What is it about growing up and living in Minnesota that shapes the careers and values of its most successful athletes? In Minnesota Made Me, award-winning sportswriter Patrick C. Borzi digs into the background of more than two dozen of Minnesotas most accomplished athletes in search of the answer. Whether famous or obscure, from small towns to the Twin Cities, all share common ground in work ethic, integrity, and a drive for excellence. Many have gone to find success in post-athletic endeavors as well. Borzi covered a lot of them, and their stories educate and inspire. Foreword written by Sid Hartman.

Patrick C. Borzi's three-decade career in journalism has taken him from Long Island to South Florida to New England to New Jersey and on to Minneapolis. A graduate of Fordham University, Borzi has covered nine World Series, three Super Bowls, two Olympic Games, and the careers of more than a dozen Hall of Famers. He met his wife Rachel, also a journalist, on the Olympics beat.
