Even though I am technically an adult, I still have dreams of playing Major League Baseball (MLB). Two years ago my wife and kids surprised me with one of the greatest gifts of my life, a trip to New York Mets Fantasy Camp. I joined roughly 130 other “adults” (kids at heart) at the Mets training facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida to play baseball and live the big league life for a week. After our talents were evaluated by the 30 former MLB players (that became our coaches), teams were drafted and we played 2 games a day, fighting for a championship. Just like a Major League player we had catered meals, access to athletic trainers, professionally lead stretches in the morning, MLB umpires, lockers of our own with full uniforms, and other MLB perks. The friendships and bonds formed with not only the other campers, but the coaches as well are astounding. I was fortunate enough to return this January as well and have no plans of stopping. I was voted by the coaches Gold Glove Award Winner two years in a row and plan to not relinquish my title. I have my wonderful wife Krista to thank for that!
