Time to start packing up, last day in #corpus my life is one big jigsaw puzzle I get to try and solve in my car #littleleaguebaseball
I can't imagine what someone like JVO is going through right now. He's 27. He's been at Corpus for 3 seasons. He's been in the minor leagues for 6 seasons. He's put up good numbers this year with a .305 BA and a .855 OPS and has been even better than that in August. And he's seen players come and go through Corpus, some leap-frogging Oklahoma City and going straight to Houston. He undoubtedly is at a crossroads in his life. Does he devote another year to 9-hour bus rides, strange hotel rooms and greasy diner food at midnight, just for that one elusive chance to make it to the bigs? When do you know that it's finally time to hang up the cleats and to pursue a new dream?
