If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would become a Professional Baseball player. It has been my life long dream, as I am transferring to William Jessup University to continue my career. The way I would change the world is by playing the game the right way. Too often do we hear about current players using performing Enhancing Drugs(PED’s), using chewing tobacco, and not being the role models they are supposed to be. It is leading younger kids, the kids who look up to these players, to think that it is okay to do what they do, to use steroids and cheat, to chew tobacco even though it can cause harm.
The goals I would set to make this dream a reality are to stay clean and be a role model, work hard everyday, and spend countless hours on practice. I think by carrying yourself the right way and not acting like a kid, is a great way to start. When I think of this, I look at players such as Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kershaw plays the game the right way. He does not use steroids, he does not make his team or himself look like a fool. He is a great ambassador of the game. Kids all over the world look up to him, and he does a great job of showing them how to play the game. With these goals, I believe that achieving this dream is possible and I can make it a reality. We can do anything we put our minds too, we just have to stick to our minds and know what we are doing is right.
