Is it your dream to become the next Derek Jeter? If you have a dream to become a professional baseball player, then you know there’s a lot of work ahead of you. You can’t just wake up one morning and decide you’re going to be a baseball player. You have to practice, keep in shape, and most importantly, you have to have some talent. If you think you want to play in the big leagues and become a professional baseball player, ask yourself these questions before you set out to work on your dream.
1. Do you have talent? No matter how much you want something, if you don’t have any natural talent, it may be a lost case. You could still work towards your dream if you don’t have any talent; it’s just going to be a lot harder.
2. Are you prepared to work? There’s no doubt about it. Becoming a professional baseball player will take work – a lot of it. You’ll have to practice, even on the weekends and give up hanging out with friends.
3. Do you eat right? Part of being a professional baseball player is being healthy. That means eating right and exercising. Sure, that Twinkie might look good, but if you are serious about becoming an athlete, you better put the Twinkie down and pick up an apple instead.
4. Are you realistic? Most professional baseball players don’t end up signing with the Yankees or the Giants their first year. In fact, many baseball players never make it out of the minor leagues. If you want to play ball, be sure that you have realistic expectations.
Now, itâ€™s time to get out there and start playing ball! Nobody ever got to their dream of being a professional baseball player by sitting around thinking about it. Start practicing and you could be in the big leagues before long.
