When I was five I instantly fell in love with the sport of Baseball. All I wanted to do was play baseball all day everyday no matter what. So of course for a career I always wanted to be a professional baseball player. Baseball has been known as America's national past time because so many people love the sport. Baseball originated before the American Civil War (1861-1865) as rounders, a humble game played on sandlots (The U.S. Department of State). In 1871 the first professional baseball league was born. By the beginning of the 20th century, most large cities in the eastern United States had a professional baseball team.(The U.S. Department of State).

    Even thought baseball is my first love I do have a back up plan because I know anything can happen. If I dont succeed in this career path then I'd like to own my own weed dispensery. This being because I want to help people, even though it's seen as a drug it's really medicine medically proven to help or even stop certain diseases and medical issues.
