What a great post. Reading it brought tears to my eyes. I was one that didn't make little league, I wish I could say I play Major league basball now but I don't. On the other hand I am a very sucessful father, and have had the same good job for 30 plus years. Didn't seem to hurt me any and I think did a bunch of good. Never do I think the world owes me anything. "I'm a great believer in luck and find the harder I work the more I have of it. Mark Twain [I think} or maybe Thomas Jefferson" Any way all those young lessons taught me to earn what I want and be creative and independant.
Thanks for bringing it all back. I've tried to instill those values in my 2 children I expect you have also.
