Big League Dreams
Pretty much every kid who has played sports dreams of growing up one day and being the star of the team. Whether it's hitting the game winning homerun or throwing the game winning touchdown, these are the dreams that drive kids playing ball at all levels. From little league to high school sports and if you're good enough, maybe you can score that scholarship that carries you through college.
Not many get a chance to play at the pro level but for those that do, there has to be a beginning. For the kids hoping to play Major League Baseball, hearing their name called in the MLB Draft is a great way to realize that dream.
