Your job might be challenging, but Lynsey Addario's is literally a battlefield. She's been injured, ambushed, and kidnapped while working as a photojournalist in war-torn countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Today, we learn why the results motivate her to continue crafting stories out of conflict. Then, the life of a major league ace isn't all about 100 mile-per-hour fastballs ... or is it? We talk about the evolution of pitching with writer Terry McDermott.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynsey Addario chronicles her work in "A Photographer's Life of Love and War," sponsored by "National Geographic," at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16. For more information, visit events.NationalGeographic.com.
