What's It Take?

This is it kid …

The road to the show goes right through my backyard. Every year I watch the Detroit Tigers AA Affiliate players live the dream. AA is so close to the show that these kids can taste it and so they play the game the way it was meant to be played, with passion. Verlander, Zumaya, Sizemore, Wilkin Ramirez (light tower power), Cornejo, Granderson, Guillen, Jurrjens, Kelly, Lackey, Larish, Ledezma, Makowiak, Maybin, Andrew Miller, Miner, Ramon Ortiz, Aramis Ramirez, Redmon, Rhodes, Robertson, Rodney, Shields, Dmitri Young, …

Why wouldn’t you go watch these guys play? And every year you see some of the same faces…still hoping to make it some day.

Agree. The truly special ones are the ones that carry that passion with them to the Big Show. Dustin Pedroia plays the game the way we all try to teach it.
