Fifty years ago, as a teenager, Patrick McBride started as the Milwaukee Brewers' first batboy. He went on to work for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Green Bay Packers.

He also attended medical school and became a dean at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine.

McBride wrote a book about his experiences titled, The Luckiest Boy In The World. In it, he shares how a troubled upbringing played a big part in who he is today.

McBride joined WUWM's Chuck Quirmbach to share more about the book.
