I am always amazed at the fine line between athletes sports lives and personal lives… And the debate of what they should do. In this case should I be at my child’s birth or in the batters box. You can have 700 opportunities a season to hit a baseball but only one shot a year to witness the birth of your child. Boomer makes it right. We encourage mistakes so we can learn from them. However the learning also requires taking responsibility for our actions and being big enough to say I was wrong.
