I lived in a baseball house.
And as a result - growing up at my house we played and watched a lot of baseball.
I started Tee Ball when I was 4 and baseball continued to be part of my life well into my teens.
Each year I would work my butt off to be the best that I could.
I would volunteer for the tough positions that others didn’t want.
I really wanted to be there.
Baseball was everything to me.
As I grew older and started my professional career I followed the same pattern.
I worked my butt off and I really wanted to be there.
Bottom of the ninth bases-loaded - It's where I want to be.
Practicing for the big game - It's where I want to be.
Hanging out in the dugout - It's where I want to be.
Winning the championship - It's where I want to be.
I don't play baseball anymore.
But the lessons I learned as a kid stayed with me.
Being part of a winning team.
Pushing yourself to be the best you can.
There's nothing like it.
It's where I want to be.
