One of the true gentlemen in sports, Pitcher Greg Maddux, will retire Monday. He was a great example of what someone without an overpowering arm could accomplish in the biggest stage in the world in his sport.
Maddux will be a first ballot hall-of-famer for sure.
I, on the other hand, am still a great example of what someone with even less talent, only played college baseball, could accomplish because I set my mind to make the accomplishment of not going to the major leagues.
Sure…they didn’t draft me, but that’s beside the point!
