Boys of Summer: MLB Childhood Memories Part 2

Think about what inspired you to pursue your dream. Something you saw in person, on TV, or read about? Or what about the dream you still have, but are still waiting to pursue? Whatever your story, don’t wait too long to go after that dream! ┬áHere are childhood memories from several Major League Baseball players who had the seed of sports as a profession planted… even though it often began just as a love of the game. (For more dreams realized, read the stories of some 40 players in my book, available here on my website.)

Please share the site with your sports fan friends, young people you’d like to have hear from their “heroes”, or other athletes to show a mantra and mission to “Perpetuate the Positive. BE Part of the Good Sports Story.”
