A Tale of Two Players

baseball playerOne the opening day of the 1954 baseball season, the Milwaukee Braves visited the Cincinnati Reds. Two rookies began their major league careers with that game. The Reds won 9-8 as Jim Greengrass hit four doubles in his first big league game. That certainly was a sensational debut for a young player who had a perfect name for a baseball player.

The rookie starting in left field for the Braves went 0-for-5. That was not a very good start for young Henry Aaron. However, Aaron, of course, went on to become baseball’s all-time home run king.

Even if you don’t get off to a good start, keep giving it your best. You never know how much you will accomplish in the long run.

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.—Philippians 3:12.
