Anyone says " the only thing that matters is that you're having fun" has never seen the outcome of all the hard work, practice, pain and tears. Has never been in a situation that isn't the most fun to be in but has succeeded because of all the hard work and effort that they put into every second of every game. Has never felt the adrenalin rush of being up to bat with two outs down by one run with the winning run at second, hitting a double to get them in and win the championship game. We don't play because its fun! we play because we can't imagine our lives without it, we don't play for the fun of the game we play for the passion in our hearts, the passion that drives us to be the best...we play simply because we love it!
