For the longest time, my passion has been the way a kid's face lights up when they walk into a ballpark. If you're ever feeling down? Watch a kid when a ballplayer gives him a foul ball. I mean, even if that kid doesn't like baseball, it's like Christmas. I've always wanted to make sure that every kid who wants to play, every kid who wants to go to a ball game, has that chance.
My current free agency period has made me question everything about that fire. It has made me question how I can do that with it possibly not being my career, because how many times are you supposed to get back up after a door is slammed in your face? How many times are you supposed to hear "no" before you start to question whether or not you made the right plan?
Sorry, that got heavy really fast. I just feel that it is most important to give back. I'm a firm believer in karma, what goes around comes around. If you do good in the world, the world will do good for you, even if it's just the reward of seeing a kid who wouldn't have been able to play baseball get a foul ball from a professional athlete.
What lights your fire?
