If you are involved in baseball just like a ton of families are in the World today, you might comprehend the parallels to this admirable journey of baseball and how it really does equate to the game of life.
One swing, one play, one foul ball, one strike out..then BAM! There comes that one hit, second hit, then runs start pouring in, then a great play by the other team and a double play stops inning just like that.
Now, it’s time to go play defense. It’s the other team’s time to put their bats in play and step up and swing to see if they can get things going as well. Do they back down.heck no! They swing with all their might as well, and they are not afraid, because they not only want to win. They want that trophy at the end of this tournament. Then they get a runner on base and they score and then a BIG time double-play happens and their run stops.
This goes on and on during the Championship game.
Does this stop the game? No, we have 5 more innings to go. How many times do you let one inning or two innings stop you from getting what you want to achieve?

How many of you are willing to do the same in life? How many and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen and come thru the other side?
See baseball is a game.to our kids, it is more than just a game – they take it hard if they lose. They celebrate when they win. They do move on though, this is not the end of their world. Does it sting for a day or two, yes? But, does this stop them from coming out to the next game and the next game? Nope.they play harder than we do in life.
As adults we need to do the same in the “game” of life. We must be willing to do whatever it takes to make life happen for ourselves – TODAY!
Let me ask you.how bad do you want to win the game? What are you willing to do to make that adjust in your swing, pitch that one pitch that keeps the hitter of balance, run to make a diving catch to save two runs from coming in to score.
Allow yourself as an adult to live and play the game of life, like our kids do on the baseball field. Don’t take nothing for granted and leave it all on the field. Meaning: “give it your all.”
