One of the things that I love most about baseball is that it constantly teaches me something new every day. As a child, it taught me how to play hard and fair play. As a teenager, it taught me how to work hard to achieve greatness. As a young adult, it taught me to maintain my faith in my team through challenges and triumphs.
Now, as a father, I am learning a whole new set of lessons as I watch the game through my son's eyes. This is his first year of Little League, and I could not be more proud.
One of the things that I truly enjoy as a fan is watching current and former Major Leaguers supporting the sport and inspiring the next generation of players. I remember rooting for Mark Langston when the Angels signed him as a free agent, and I was a fan in the stadium when he pitched a combined no-hitter with Mike Witt. So, when Mark Langston was announced as the guest speaker for the Opening Day ceremonies for the Tustin Eastern Little League, I was thrilled! Not only was he someone who could inspire my son, he could inspire me.
After listening to Mark give some words of advice to all the children present, and telling some good stories to embellish his message, I caught up with Mark for a quick interview.
