Being a major league baseball player has always been one of my dreams since I was a child. I always looked up to professional athletes, and now that I am a professional baseball player I am very conscious of the impact I can have on young people.

There are times I get frustrated and angry like everyone else and sometimes feel like cursing or arguing about a call that I don’t like. When that happens, though, I remember that there are a lot of kids watching me and because I want to be a good example, I control myself and don’t say anything. Jesus commanded us to “let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

Baseball is important to me, but my relationship with God is the most important thing in my life because it’s eternal. If you want to know God personally the way I do, follow these ABC’s:

Admit you’re a sinner (Romans 3:23).

Believe that Jesus is God’s Son and that He died to pay for
your sins. (Romans 5:8; 10:9-10).

Call on the Lord and ask Him to save you. (Romans 10:13)
