Jack -- I just joined CheckSwing today. Great to see you on here. I fell in love with baseball with the help of the 1980s Mariners. Most notably, your former teammate and double play parnter Spike Owen. I still have a vidid memory of a '84 or '85 Mariners calendar I had with a picture of you fielding a ball at second in the beautiful Kingdome. Hope all is well with you.

Same as I tell any ballplayer, Don't stop playing till you decide it is time - don't let others tell you to quit playing - if every player quit when others told them they were not good enough there would be a whole different set of major leaguers up there now. If pro ball doesn't happen at first, keep playing, go to tryouts whatever till you decide it is time to give up the dream. Best of luck
