Here are my three favorite things about baseball:
2. Garlic fries! Mmmmmmmmmmm……. I don’t think I need to say anything more here.
3. And my favorite thing about baseball… You can fail 70% of the time and still be considered a success!
Number three is encouraging to me. When I finally figured out what batting averages meant I was surprised that really good players are batting between .200 and .300.
But, you know, that’s probably true in all of life. We tend to look at successful people and think that everything they do must work out the first time. One of my favorite quotes is from Thomas Edison,
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Stephen Spielberg? He was rejected from the USC film school twice!
Bill Gates? His first business failed!
Richard Branson? He has dyslexia and did very poorly in school!
Albert Einstein? He didn’t speak until he was four years old!
Have you failed? I bet you haven’t failed 10,000 times yet! Just keep remembering those baseball players. If you succeed 30% of the time, you’ll be an all-star!
NOTE: If you’re a big baseball fan, please forgive me. I know there’s a lot more that goes into being a good baseball player than just the batting average.
Being right there by the water, the park gets pretty chilly when the sun goes down.
Not a good photo of my necklace so I added more of the others I’ve done for the Giants and other teams. So far I’ve done San Francisco Giants, Oakland As, Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays, Anaheim Angels, Kansas City Royals, and some high school teams. Some are listed in my Etsy shop or you can send me a message and let me know what team you’d like.
