One of the new features we have planned for Baseball Beginnings is called Big League Beginnings. Here, we’ll catch up with current major league players to discuss their memories of their earlier years as draft prospects and minor leaguers.
The big leagues are a pretty tough place, to be perfectly honest. It’s a dog-eat-dog workplace where most guys know that if they aren’t good all the time, they won’t be there. Confidence is a must and so is experience. Players are guarded, but many of them keep those early years close to them.
Speaking of players, here’s one: Mets third baseman David Wright. Click here to see him as a high school player a decade ago at the Area Code games. You can also find this new feature any time across the top menu bar.
