The http://www.renoaces.com (page on MILB.com) interviews a Reno Aces player or coach weekly.
While reading this weeks’, Here, with Manager Brett Butler I saw this question and answer..
“RA: Many young fans wanted to seek your guidance on becoming a Major League player someday. What advice would you give to the young kids out there who are dreaming to reach the level at which you played.
BB: The advice that I would give to any young person wanting to play Major League Baseball, is that if you have that dream, do not let anyone tell you that you cannot do it. If you do not believe in yourself, then nobody else will believe in you! Go for it!”
Isn’t that what it’s all about? Encouraging those who love the game to play and believe in themselves? Whether baseball, soccer, music, academics.. shouldn’t we all be teaching confidence and pride as much as their chosen activity?
