But if I don’t have anything to do, I try to spend time with people, especially in the ballpark. I say hi to kids and I shake their hands, and I like to give them high fives and encourage them. I like to let them know that we are human beings. We’re not just robot ballplayers who don’t want to interact with you.
I try to make sure I’m reflecting Christ in a way that’s positive. I just want to love on people, especially the kids. I want to let them know that I’m real, that I care about them, and I hope they do well. A lot of dads will say, “Do you have any advice for my son?” And I always say, “You know, you need to dream, and dream really, really big.” I try to interact with kids and encourage them to dream.
I’d like to encourage you to dream, too. What is your dream? Are you a parent or grandparent or minister? What do your kids dream? What do your congregations dream? Do you talk about it?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
