Michael Yates isn't squeamish. In his line of work, that's probably a job requirement.
Yates, 27, grew up in Campbellsville but now calls Washington, D.C. home.
In Washington, Yates spends his days at a hospital doing neuropsychological evaluations.
A 1999 Taylor County High School graduate, Yates was once focused on playing baseball for a living. That all changed during a trip to Europe.
In 2001, Yates was chosen to play on the USA Athletes International baseball team and traveled to Europe.
