Best Part Of Playing Amateur Baseball: The continuation of playing baseball, because after high school you don't know what is going to happen with your baseball career. It might end after high school. Wooden Bats.

Should players from the "Steroids Era" such as Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, and Roger Clemens be in the Baseball Hall of Fame? Yes, because they still put the time in the gym, cages, and field to get to where they're at.

Parting Thoughts: Can't wait until May 1st, and of course, all of the other dates that our games are on! Oh and P.S. you won't see last year's Marc with the attitude problem and anger issues on the field anymore. Some people change, some people don't. I believe I did. I'm still going to have a good time at St. Stephen, but I'll keep it under control this time.
