Just like anything written, there will be the critics.
So after I wrote my post about ball players needing to be motivated I get an email from a reader, saying “little leaguers” (american) want it just as bad as any other kid”.
I was a little shocked! I dont remember saying (american) little leaguers didnt want it just as bad.
I remember saying 7 out 10 would say “I want to be famous”!
That leaves three right!
Those are the kids who WANT IT!! those are the kids bustin it. Just because we may live in a better country (my opinion) then most, doesn’t mean our individual lives are better.
After the email I did a little more digging to see what I could find.
Here it is
This is a picture of where major leaguers are from. US is the only picture map I could find.
States Ranked by “best” to live
According to the maps and my first post. The kids in the “best” states to live, may not “have to” better their life.
And just because you may not “have to” “better” your life, doesnt mean you dont “want” to.
In my opinion, it’s not necessarily where you live, but what you live with!
According the “best” states to live, How many have a pro team for the boys to grow up following, seeing live, the “tangibles”?
Its also true that the states south can play year round!!
There are good explanations behind every theory. There are always exceptions to the rules…..
But like I said in the original, a ball player needs the hunger.
