One 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.
