What The Game Means To Me

Baseball means so much to me just going out and playing on the fresh cut grass and gently raked dirt makes me feel at home. I can't really explain how much i love baseball because it is just something that has always been in my heart. Also growing up with my dad loving to always go out and play any sport i was in to. But i always wanted to be like my dad and i knew there wasn't any cricket teams around because my dad was a professional cricket player himself. So i guess thats when i found baseball and i have loved it ever since. I hope one day i can be like my dad and be a pro.
