I enjoy baseball, it’s a great game and I love playing it and I love to fun times had with teammates.
I’m going to finish this year no matter what, I’ve already put so much money into this that it would be dumb not to finish the year off.
But lately I’ve been having doubts about whether or not I should continue playing for the club team here at UWyo.
It costs a lot of money and takes up a lot of time, and there’s not a lot of reward for it either. The people who are in charge are a tight knit group who play almost all the games, even in these recent meaningless pre-season games. Some people take it way too seriously and others are just crybabies about everything.
I’m also having trouble being the only sober one whenever we’ve gone on trips, especially this most recent one.
I’ve had a lot of fun with baseball and still am but it’s getting to the point where I think maybe I ought to just say enough is enough, get a part time job while I’m going to school and dedicate myself to achieving my life goals in the future. Besides I can still help coach my old legion team (coach asked me to) during the summers.
I also have a lot of other commitments that take up time like talent show, open-mic stand up performances, and my secular students alliance that are less demanding financially and take up less time that I can’t really participate in as much as I’d like with the commitment to a baseball team.
These are my thoughts, what are yours? At what point do you decide that the fun you have with baseball isn’t worth continuing?
