Video: Motivational speaker Donnie Moore breaks a brick over Fredi Gonzalez’s chest


Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez hired motivational speaker Donnie Moore to energize his clubhouse on Saturday. Part of Moore’s spiel included having Gonzalez trust him enough to break a brick over his chest with a hammer. Gonzalez walked away unscathed.

Gonzalez said the idea to bring Moore in came from outfielder Jonny Gomes.

The Braves, perhaps inspired by Moore, held on to win 6-5 over the Astros in Saturday afternoon’s Grapefruit League action.
