It has to start with you having a passion to get ready in the off-season. That commitment from early November all the way until spring training. If it was just playing a six-month season, guys would probably play longer if they could, because that’s the fun part. Getting ready for a whole season is a huge commitment. If you say you’re going to do it, you can’t shortchange that.
