Hey there everyone, I’m Chris. I’m the guy you talk to on the phone, responds to your emails, ships your bats, occasionally misspells a few of your names on your bats, and now blogs. More or less, I’m the office guy who they don’t let out into the shop because I’ll break something. In this blog I plan on mixing in a little bit of everything; from customer questions and/or experiences to tips for players, and possibly even a few of my personal experiences.
So to get started, here’s a little background information on me. Writing scares me. Sharing my
thoughts with the public scares me more. I’ve been procrastinating for over a year on doing this but something clicked for me today. I’m not really sure what exactly it was, but the idea of leading by
example came to mind. I’ve been trying, without much success, to get this blog to take off and realized I haven’t been putting in the effort required to blame anything or anyone but myself. Well here I am.
My reason for making this blog was, and is, twofold.
First, I want to reach out to our customer base
and share some of our stories and points of view in an effort to broaden the customer experience, and in the process, shed some light on the people behind the business. Second, I want this to be a place anyone can go to read up on the life of minor league baseball players. Ideally I want this to be a place kids, adults, fans—anyone who’s interested in baseball, can get to know what life is really like for a minor leaguer baseball player. We all see the 40 man guys on TV living the life but no one knows the trip they had to take to get there. Some are drafted in the first round and have all the God-given talent to make it to the show in a few years. Some are in their 6th year in the minors fighting for a job and trying to still live the dream. Whatever their story, I want to share them with you, and I just so happen to have a job that allows me to do just that.
So here is to stepping out of my comfort zone and trying to make my vision for this blog a reality. Until next week I leave you with this question. What have you done today?
