Well, the grind continues out here in Arizona. As each day goes by, it tends to
resemble the previous day just a little more. The day begins when my alarm
clock goes off at six am and I roll out of bed. I proceed down to the lobby to grab a bite to
eat before I hitch a ride out to the complex around 6:40.
When I get to the complex I grab a little something else to
eat because it’s going to have to hold me over till 1 pm. I usually head out to the cages for some
early hitting before we stretch as a team and take some more batting practice.
After that we play our game, have a quick workout and then call it a day. So
that sounds pretty easy, right?
I have found it rather difficult to get up for these games.
For the last four years, I have played games in front of thousands of people
and now we play in front of zero. Self-motivation has taken on a whole new
meaning for me. The motivation is to get
out of here as fast as possible and get myself on a team where winning and
losing takes on some meaning. So, like I
said, the grind continues and I proceed with the belief that the end is near. I will be saved.
