My Baseball Story
My Baseball Story
I love this game. It has been half century since I started to fall in love with baseball. The romance is still going strong. Playing, coaching, watching, listening, and reading about baseball has been part of my every day life sine I was 15 years old. Even in the dead of winter when baseball is on the back pages of the newspaper I will find out what new development has occurred or who has been signed or traded.
I want to write and read about all types of baseball stories that are inspiring. Why not? Isnít being inspired a great way to live? Isnít offering others an expression of what you love the ultimate gift?
I discovered my need to write and gather inspiring stories about baseball as I drove on route 80 in Northen New Jersey in February 2004. I started thinking about the movies I have seen and the stories I have read that I loved. Like The Lou Gehrig story Pride of the Yankees. or stories about Babe Ruth. Why did I like these stories? What was ďMyĒ definition of a great story? I was fixed on finding an answer .I started thinking about the movie Field of Dreams, one of my all time favorites. Why did I like this corny movie so much? Was Field of Dreams a metaphor for living out of your field of dreams? Was creating a clearing done to ALLOW the dreams to show up? In the movie they cleared away a crop of corn to build a baseball field. Do we need to clear away some of our own corn fields to see the dreams that capture our hearts and then create a path to reach those dreams?
It was then I decided to open up a new road for myself. The direction I was meant to travel on. I love baseball. Oh I said that. I love great stories. I said that as well. Let me fuse these two passions, together. Sounds good.Ē I said to myself. I guess I am pretty corny, huh. That is the birth of Baseballís Pride and Joy. Talk about a labor of love. This baby has been living inside me for over 30 years.
What could be better than finding your love and then nurturing it. I have discovered my essence. Pretty good. When I write these words I see that I am on the field I want to play on. While I am not a N Y Yankee, I am playing fantasy baseball through these stories.
A fantasy I had 40 years ago was to play baseball for the New York Yankees. While I did not make the Yankees or Mets or any other team I have always remained a baseball lover. I am making my fantasy baseball story real by giving people the opportunity to write their Major League baseball story. Whether your story is NCAA Baseball or Minor League Baseball or from high school. It does not matter. Write your inspiring baseball story.
Now I can provide a place for others to tell their tale of baseball inspiration. Tell your Field of Dreams or be like The Natural even if you are The Rookie.
Make your story sing.
Make it vibrant.
