I used to love baseball more than anything
I grew up and lived around Puerto Limon. It is a port city on the east coast of Costa Rica. My parents have eight children, and I am the seventh child. My father died when I was eight. Since then, my mother raised children alone.
Baseball has always been a part of my life. Since childhood I have loved this subject. I joined an amateur baseball team as a teenager. When I was playing on the baseball team, a recruiter asked me to join a professional team in Nicaragua.
But my mother was sick at the time and I was looking after her, so I did not want to move to Nicaragua. I declined the invitation. Later, another recruit invited me to play for Costa Rica’s national baseball team, consisting of selected members of the amateur team. This time I agree.
I’m good at playing golf and play pretty well, even playing 17 games in a row without making a mistake. I love the feeling of being cheered by my name!
Sadly, I lived a lecherous life. Although I have a girlfriend, I also have other lovers. I’m drunk too. Once I was so drunk that the next day I woke up in bed, I couldn’t remember how I got home! In addition, I also play lottery and place bets in dominoes.
While I lived like that, my mother became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She tried to make me pay attention to her beliefs but at first failed because I loved baseball. I can train all the time without feeling hungry! My mind is focused on this subject. I love baseball more than anything!
However, at 29 years of age, I was seriously injured when I tried to catch the ball in a match. After I recovered, I didn’t play in the professional team anymore. But I am still a part of the baseball team through training amateur players near my home.
