I’ve decided to plunge myself head first into realizing my dream. I don’t post here, but I’ve been a lurker for almost a year now. I’ve been inspired by people on this board such as Lanky Lefty and Dan Blewett, and people off this board, such as Rinku Singh and Jim Morris. One of the main obstacles that was holding me back from truly making a go at this has been resolved.
A quick overview, I’m almost 25 years old. At the beginning of 2012 I decided I wanted to start playing baseball, my goal being to become a pitcher. I had never played baseball before in my life. I’ve worked out and thrown, but I haven’t truly dedicated myself to it, mainly because of personal issues. All that is gone now, and I’m 100% dedicated towards my goal.
