No Information

My dream job would be becoming a professional baseball player. I grew up playing little league baseball. I was never the best player on the team; yet, playing baseball was something I would look forward to doing everyday and just have fun doing it. I haven’t played baseball in seven years. I really miss the times when I would just have that happy feeling when my dad would drive up to the park, when I would get a base hit, when I would catch a fly ball, or just the fact that I was part of a team.

So many baseball players these days take their jobs for granted. Many play baseball not just because they’re good at it, but because of the money. Alex Rodriguez signed a $252 million contract for the Texas Rangers in 2000. Anybody in the entire world would love to be in his shoes. After all, what would you do with $252 million? For myself, I would love to be in Alex Rodriguez’s shoes, not because of the money, not because of the fame, but because if I were in his shoes, I would just treasure every moment of every second that I am on that field. I would treasure every step I take in the dirt of such legendary baseball parks like Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Dodger Stadium and Wrigley Field. I would treasure every moment I get to spend in the same vicinity of such future Hall-of-Famers like Barry Bonds, Randy Johnson, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens.

I would feel like the luckiest person alive every time I am reminded that I am living the dream, a dream that many people like myself would die to get the chance to do. Twenty-five lucky people for each team get the honor to say to the whole world that they play baseball as a living ad support their families. I would give anything for the chance at becoming one of them. Yes, baseball players do make a great deal of money and more money than anyone could possibly imagine. But if you do give me the opportunity to be a professional baseball player, you wouldn’t have to pay me a single cent.
