If a young player said that he was going to play in the Major Leagues one day, how would you respond?
(8:35) I am going to play in the Major Leagues one day! (8:55) Lofty goals help you in every facet of your life. (9:39) its okay if you don't meet your ultimate goal, because you gave your best effort, but its not okay to give up on a dream; especially when you are young. (10:00) Pat Misch, of Baseball Utility, shares a story about a father’s regret of expressing doubt. (11:40) You want to prove others wrong? Start by proving yourself RIGHT!
