It is easy and convenient to lounge on a couch and play video games such as “MLB2K10” or “MLB 10 The Show.” It’s fun to imagine yourself as an all-time great and lose yourself in the fantasy of being a gaming system superstar.

In fact, for many youngsters, it’s far too easy to dabble in fantasy rather than to prepare for reality.

“Most people want to be something but very rarely want to do the work that it takes to become something,” said author and pro baseball scout Paul Reddick. Move past the wishing, wanting, hoping and fantasizing stage and take the necessary steps to become a great hitter, on a real-life baseball diamond. There’s a time and a place to be a game console phenom; be certain to devote more time to become a great flesh-and-blood hitter, first!
