I?m moving on in my life from playing baseball. ?Notice, I didn?t say, I was done with baseball! ?How could anyone who loves the game ever ?be done.? ?And certainly I love the game! ?I love the way it taught me to fail and get over it. ?I love the way it helped me become the man I am today. ?I love the way it?s provided for me and my family. ?There?s so much to love about this game. ?I just don?t love playing it anymore, and that?s how I know it?s time to not pursue a job playing this year.
