On my flight to Spring Training this year I couldnt help but chuckle a few times thinking about some of the stuff that I used to say when I was a really young player just starting out in professional baseball. The first time that I have to repeat a level I am going to shut it down. My personal favorite was If I am not in the Big Leagues by the time I am 30 then I will retire for sure! Now fortunately I had enough sense not to really say these things to other people but they definitely rattled around in my head. Well I went to Double A twice and I have been in Triple A since August of 2003 and I am still playing so that statement is out of the window. Obviously the title of my Blog suggest that my other statement is null and void as well. I continue to play because I love this game and I really do think that I can contribute to a Major League team. Honestly it is really that simple. So yeah, here we go again on another six month journey, who knows where it will take me. One thing I do know is that I am going to ride this thing until the wheels fall off!!
